A stunning example of an iridescent calcite multi-ammonite fossil of the species Psiloceras planorbis from North Somerset, UK.
The piece of limestone matrix measures 100 mm (3.9 inches) tall and contains two fossil ammonites, the largest of which measures 30 mm. The ammonites are well preserved and have been prepared out of the rock to reveal the whole shells. The shell displays some subtle iridescent colours that change depending on the angle that the fossil is viewed at and a nice red sheen. The fossil weighs 370 grams and has a cut flat base to allow it to stand freely for display.
Around 200 million years old (Hettangian, Early Jurassic), this fossil would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
