Description

Ammonite Cleoniceras very charming thanks to its well preserved open chambers with crystallization of Aragonite and Calcite.
Sectioned and polished by hand to give it this concave surface that creates a pleasant three-dimensional effect.
Another feature are the very sharp and clearly visible suture lines of the phyllodes type septa, which create a fantastic texture that adds beauty to the subject.
On the back there are shell portions with a beautiful red opalescence.
Ammonites are excellent guide fossils, and it is often possible to link the rock layer in which a particular species or genus is found to specific geological periods.
Excellently preserved specimen, rich in details, ideal for enriching a precious Wunderkammer.
