Nice topic! And, those are stunning teeth :faint: And there are quite a few other awesome fossils too; that blue croc is wicked!

 

Here are some more examples. 

There are, of course, the very common polished Madagascan ammonites Cleoniceras, with always great colors.

Then, I also have those small pyrite ammonites Aconoceras from Carniol, France. From the Aptian of the Cretaceous. Though not really visible on this picture, they have beautiful golden flashes when held under a light.

Looking forward to seeing some opalized fossils too; those are always impressive.
