Nice sutures and inner whorls

Recommended Posts

I dug up this relatively large (19cm. diameter) phragmocone of a Choffatia sp. ammonite on my last visit to the Wutach valley. It was obvious to me at the time of extraction that parts of the outer whorls were missing, but I decided to take it home anyway, thinking that although it was worth a closer look, I'd probably end up disposing of it. Well, in the end I didn't , since I found that the calcitic steinkern preservation of the outer whorls  with the nicely pronounced sutures and the shell preservation on the inner whorls on one side warranted that I keep it in the collection for the time being.

It sure was worth keeping in the end. By the way, those aren't "finds", but rather 2 photos of the same ammo.
