Paralegoceras evolutumDescription: The difference between fine art and nature’s natural creative processes are often a topic of endless debate. This rare and magnificent piece is arguably both. Note the opalised, drusey fine crystalline interior of this ammonites air chambers. The small individual crystals sparkle like the finest gems. The base color is an off-white with some patchy purple/brown shadings. It was professionally prepared and polished to reveal the outer lustrous veneer and inner sparkling radiance. It would make a wonderful decorative piece, or, an inspired gift to any lover of nature’s creative genius.
