    Ammonite Fossil
    Harpoceras sp.
    Jurassic
    Posidonienschiefer Formation
    Holzmaden, Bavaria, Germany

    This glorious Ammonite imprint fossil from the renowned Holzmaden shales of Germany is quite large, measuring some 10 inches (25 cm) across. The golden Harpoceras is set against finely-grained jet-black sedimentary rock resulting in a visually dramatic and highly decorative example. The gold core exhibits an Ammonite form, within the larger outline, measuring 5 inches (12.7 cm). The outer section offers an incomplete wider band with a striated texture. This is a classic specimen from a world-famous location.
    Overall Measurements: 14.17 x 11.42 x 0.39 inches (36.00 x 29.00 x 1.00 cm)
