Cut and Polished Ammonites – Madagascar
An interesting way to show off a fossil – these cut and polished Ammonites show you the inside of the Ammonite fossil itself.
The inside section has been polished, giving you a look at the small Quartz or Calcite crystals which have formed inside the various chambers and sections of the fossil.
The back side has been left unpolished, and sometimes gives a look at the distinctive ‘suture’ pattern of Madagascan Ammonites. In some cases, these Ammonites may also have a slightly polished iridescent rear, as seen in our pictures.
These Ammonites make excellent display pieces, due to their high polish. We hope to be able to sell some small display stands or cases for them soon.
We sell a range of Ammonite fossils – both rough and cut / polished.
