4.9" Iridescent Hoploscaphites Ammonite With Wood Stand - SD

 
This is an absolutely gorgeous, partially iridescent Hoploscaphities (Jeletzkytes) nebrascensis ammonite from the Fox Hills Formation of South Dakota. Ammonite is good sized for the species at 4.9" wide and nicely prepared. A custom wooden display stand has been created to create a very aesthetic display piece.

These 70 million year old ammonites lived when South Dakota was a shallow inland sea. It was found preserved in a concretion that was split open. It then had to be hand prepared to remove the hard rock surrounding it from the shell, a very time consuming task.
