Adorable Ammonite Box
    Handcrafted in Wyoming
    Fossil Source: Madagascar - Stone Source: Russia

    This one-of-a-kind, handcrafted box includes beautiful blonde colored Cherry wood with accents of Red Oak with black and brown tones. The wood borders a river of resin which has entombed a 66 million year old Madagascar Ammonite that measures 2.5 inches (6.4 cm) in diameter and a piece of stunning Astrophyllite from Russia. The Astrophyllite measures 1.8 x 1.6 inches (4.4 x 4 cm) and exhibits its characteristic amber-esque colored bladed crystal aggregates. The Ammonite was placed in such a way on the hinged lid that it can be seen on the inside, and was sliced thin enough for light to pass through. This box has serial number 201546, is in excellent condition, and is a unique way to display both fossils and minerals together.
    Overall Measurements: 7.8 x 5.4 x 4.1 inches (19.8 x 13.7 x 10.5 cm)
    Offered at no reserve.
