Ammonites became extinct in the late Cretaceous period c.65 million years when a massive meteor impact also led to the demise of the Dinosaurs] This nice example has been well prepared and completely free of surrounding rock matrix, well detailed, intact and un-repaired, a decent example of the type, 68mm diameter x 23mm thick.
