This is an amazing decorator display fossil as much as it would be an unusual and rare addition to any advanced ammonite collection. Specimens like this are EXTREMELY RARE and seldom seen on the market. The rarity of these specimens cannot be overstated. Their completeness and quality of preservation EXCEEDS anything seen from this region in professional scientific and museum collections. Not only are these ammonite fossils we are offering from this collection beautiful to look at, they are extremely uncommon and exceedingly rare to the most advanced collector.
The remarkable ENORMOUS mass cluster includes 10 different ammonite fossils, a fossil clam and a fossil scallop. The range of species of these varies but includes rare examples of Emileia bulligeraa, Sonninia papillata, Harpoceras, Lytoceras, Stephanoceras sp., Witchellia sayni and Shirbuirnia trigonalis. Each ammonite is an excellent example of their respective kinds, on their host rock in full three dimensional form. All ammonites are wonderfully preserved in a fully inflated form. The ammonites all have full high relief and on the matrix, the group displays as a superb multi-dimensional display that MUST be seen in person to fully grasp and appreciate. This exceptional fossil ammonite group is far nicer than they appear in the photos. These species are found together in the Middle Jurassic Bajocian sediments of the Central High Atlas mountains in Morocco but some in this group have been assembled onto the rock with others. Surrounding stone matrix has been lightened for aesthetic contrast. Each fossil shows rare shell detail as well as full inflation with no distortion. Perfect to accompany any advanced fossil marine life collection as well as a stunning and highly unique interior design fossil of pure natural history!
