Description

A spectacular block of the Cretaceous Inferior the Albiano (100 -113 million years) coming from the fossil deposits of Madagascar. This sample comes from the Tulear quarries where spectacular ammonites are found.
Very beautiful example both from a scientific and ornamental point of view, it represents a real photograph of the past, a photograph of the seas of the Cretaceous.
In the first line we find a beautiful ammonite of the very large Cleoniceras species, in excellent condition and with red opalescence. The ammonite is located in its original matrix and has only been partially polished.
Alongside the ammonite we find another beautiful specimen of nautiloid, also in a natural position on the block, partially polished and also with rare opalescence on the back, which alternate red and green lines.
Surely it will be impossible to capture light and color through a photograph, but we guarantee that live, the colors are nothing short of fantastic.
Less important in size, we find two Douvilleiceras on the base of the block, while in the back, there are several shells of bivalve shells and belemnites, also typical of that era.
