Large Pyritized Fossil Plate with Harpoceras and Dactylioceras Ammonites

A phenomenal fossil display 180 million years in the making! This amazing fossil plate comes from the Holzmaden Shale in Germany. It features two prominent Harpoceras Ammonite fossils which have been naturally replaced by the mineral Pyrite. The bright brass coloration, detailed texture, and large size of the Ammonite fossils creates a stunning contrast against the dark shale rock matrix. 

Ammonites are an extinct group of sea creatures which thrived during the Jurassic Period approximately 180 million years ago. Besides the larger and more rare Harpoceras ammonite species, this plate also features the more common variety of ammonite found at this location, Dactylioceras.

Approx. 11.2" H x 9" W x .75" D
