Thank you for taking the time to read this post. I am taking time during the lock down to have a declutter and I came across this small ammonite in two halves I purchased in India some years ago. I have no clue about its authenticity but I seem to remember the seller telling me it came from a riverbed in Nepal. Let me know what you think, I believe it is a lovely little object - perhaps a paperweight if nothing else!

 

It was bought in a not particularly touristic town in Karnataka state, in a shop selling religious artefacts - take from that what you will.

A lot of these ammonites are made with plaster. But this one seems to be real.
