This is an incredibly beautifully shaped and well preserved Canadian ammonite. Compared to the majority of the other Placenticeras meekis found in mining operations, this ammonite tends to stick out due to its extremely bright colours and great shape. This is a perfect mantel piece for a home collector, as well as a valued addition to any prized fossil collection. It displays bright reds, oranges, golds and greens with a touch of the rare blues. This Placenticeras costatum specimen measures 33 cm (13”) across and weighs approximately 5.1 kg.
