rich caramel-colored Calcite crystals ,some are filled with various
minerals,different colour different stages of formation
The septa (divisions) between each chamber preserved as white Calcite, making for a superb display piece. The outher side shows the intricate suturing that allowed the ammonite to reinforce its shell.
