This is most spectacular ammonite the Gallery has had in its possession. The brilliant and deep colours on both sides of this specimen radiate out in all angles and the colour shifts from red to orange, green, gold and the rarest colour - Blue. Simply breathtaking.
This ammonite also has witnessed the weight of the changing sands of time in its shape which has been compacted over 71 000 000 years. Yet, nature has preserved this specimen and painted it in all colours of the rainbow.
This is also a large specimen, measuring 42cm at its widest point.
