9.6" Choffaticeras ("Daisy Flower") Ammonite

This is a large example of a rarely seen ammonite from Madagascar. It is of the genus Choffaticeras, 9.3" wide, quite thick and the half weighs just over 6 lbs. Ammonites of this genus are often referred to as Margarite or "Daisy" flower ammonites. It has been cut in half and polished to reveal the amazing inner detail. Many of the chambers have been preserved as deep, spectacular CRYSTAL LINED pockets. This is an extremely aesthetic and displayable ammonite fossil. There is some restoration/repair to the back side of one of the ammonites but it is not visible on the display side.

This listing includes both halves of the ammonite plus display stands.
