This fossilized Cleoniceras Ammonite Pair, displaying tones of orange, slate, bronze, brown, gold, gray, amber, and white, is polished on both the interior and exterior sides, allowing the details to stand out. This sliced pair shows spectacular patterns and crystal structures on the interior side of the shell.
Ammonites were first called Ammon’s Stones for their resemblance to the ram’s horns of Ammon, ancient Egyptian God of life and procreation.
These ammonite specimens are quarried and carved in the Western Sahara region of southern Morocco.
Dimensions: Approx. 2.5” x 2” x .25”
