From a rare locale in Eastern Europe, this is substantial and beautiful white block of limestone encasing a STUNNING, naturally occurring and well-preserved Perisphinctes sp. ammonite from the Jurassic Era. A visually striking and unique interior design accent. The ammonite and matrix from this region are found in beautiful, ivory white color and both the ammonites and matrix are usually this same bright hue. On some occasions, the ammonites have become very slightly tinted in a light green hue but they overall, are nearly the same beautiful tone as the white limestone boulders they are found in. Scattered throughout the surface are other partial ammonites and negative imprints of ammonites.
From around the world, most fossil deposits of ammonites do NOT naturally produce the fossils on the matrix in a stark white color like this one. This source produces this unusual similar color ammonite fossils making them really impressive and attractive for interior design applications.
The chamber detail of these ammonites are very well-preserved and three dimensional. The ammonite protrudes fully off the matrix in the same form as when alive over 150 million years ago at a time when dinosaurs ruled the Earth.
