This beautiful, large, fire nautilus at this size is rare. It has great presence as well as astonishing colour , normally associated with the Cleoniceras Ammonite. This is a very large Nautilus and as such is rare. The Nautilus shows beautiful fire greens and reds over most of its nacre. Part of the nacre at the mouth of the largest chamber shows the sub surface and ribbing of the creature.
