Bearpaw Formation, Late Cretaceous, Approx. 71 MYA, Alberta, Canada

Offered here is a beautiful, large ammolite specimen that has been carved, shaped and polished to resemble a squid. It comes with a custom-made display stand made from a chunk of the Bearpaw Shale. The colourful ammolite specimen measures approximately 21cm. X 13cm at it's largest dimensions and 0.8cm thick at its thickest point. The rock stand measures approximately 13cm. X 9cm at it's largest dimensions and 3cm thick at its thickest point. Together they weigh 767g with the ammolite piece weighing 219g.

This is a large piece of primarily purple, blue and green ammolite specimen from a large Placenticeras ammonite. It is slightly concave in nature which suggests that it is a counter-fossil. It still possesses quite a lot of ammolite on the rare end of the spectrum and possesses quite a lot of "fire". It has a very smooth surface.

It has been polished on the front to highlight the shape of the whorl while the back side has a detailed carving of a squid.

This piece was prepared by Alberta artisan and ammolite technician Dave Straat.

It comes with a certificate of Authenticity
