Opalized Ammonite With Acrylic Display Stand V1
AAA quality, fossilized and calcified ammonite shell with an iridescent, opalized shimmer displaying hints of blue, yellow, green, and vibrant red. This opalized fossil is all natural- opal has filled the spaces in the fossilized shell that remained. This process doesn't happen overnight! It takes roughly 5 million years to solidify just one centimeter of opal. The fossilized shells of Ammonites are typically spiral-shaped, very much like that of the Nautilus. However, around 170 million years ago, these squid-like creatures began to build their shells in exotic, highly variable shapes.
