Size: Larger ammonite is over 6 inches wide
This is an absolutely stunning specimen of Nymboceras septum from the Cretaceous of Madagascar. This large, 3-dimensional ammonite has been removed from the surrounding matrix and highly polished on both sides. The tiny inner whorls of the lenticular ammonite are easily seen, and the intricate suture pattern is beautifully displayed. The cream-colored suture lines contrast wonderfully with the deep brown shell of the cephalopod. But wait, there's more! There is a smaller Nymboceras attached to the upper right of the larger ammonite - we have never seen this from Madagascar before. The size of the ammonite, the complex suture pattern, and the piggyback ammonite make this a highly collectible ammonite specimen. (The bright white streak is in the photo and not on the specimen.)
