Although ammonite fossils are found all over the world, only ammonites from southern Alberta, Canada display magnificent colours and this Canadian ammonite has them in abundance. This specimen has extremely bright colours throughout showing marvelously on both sides of this specimen. This ammonite displays bright burgundies, reds, oranges, golds, greens as well as a touch of the rare blues and purples on both sides. This fossil displays multiple colours at the same time which denotes a much higher quality specimen. The shape is great in this specimen and this Placenticeras costatum ammonite measures 43 cm (17”) across and weighs 8.3 kg.
