Description
Ammonite fossil with Aragonite crystallization - Cleoniceras Sp. - 160×130×35.5 mm
CRETACEOUS-Lower Cretaceous, Albian (100.5–113.0 million years) - Madagascar

Ammonite Cleoniceras fossil with visible mouths, excellently preserved, characterized by very clear phylloid suture lines which in some parts have a quite thick white track that increases contrast and beauty.
On one side you can admire a portion that has a Aragonite crystallization that makes the piece even more unique.
Another characteristic of this specimen is the termination of the ventral side, which was cut following the suture lines creating a fascinating three-dimensional effect.
