Ammonite pyrite replacement; Pleuroceras sp. Jurassic. Buttenheim, Germany (double)

$52.00 USD

3.5cmW x 6.5cmL x 2cmD

Ammonite pyrite replacement, Pleuroceras sp., Jurassic, Buttenheim, Germany.
This specimen contains the fossilized remains of two ammonites. The outer shell material has been replaced by pyrite, which has been polished to further enhance its appearance, contrasting with the matte grey calcareous matrix. One displays the exterior shape of the shell with beautiful detailing of the ridged whorls of the shell. Small irregularities in this surface represent suture patterns or other post-death alterations of the shell. The interior one shows the inside of the ridged whorls.

The energy of all ammonites displaying their spiral shape represents positive change, evolution, the leaving behind of that which is no longer needed so there is room for the new. Fossil ammonites also have the energy of the material replacing the shell, usually calcite or pyrite.
