Large rare (with shell) 15.2 cm Caenesites turneri ammonite Black Ven Lyme Regis
Large Caenesites turneri Ammonite (J. Sowerby)
Lyme Regis (Black Ven)
A rare, large well inflated and decorative species of ammonite rarely prepared with the shell.
There is some crushing to the siphuncle part of the way around, but this is barely visible.
It takes many hours to prepare ammonites this way as the shell is often very delicate and easily fractured.
This ammonite measures Approx 15.2 cm (6 inches) at its widest point.
Matrix Approx: 20 cm x 15 cm
Restoration: ( A couple of very small holes filled on surface of ammonite)
