How "natural" is this ammonite?

Recommended Posts

I bought this ammonite at a gem show the other day.  It is about 2.5" across.

 

I know it is real, but am curious about how "natural" it is- has it been excessively polished, cut, or otherwise altered?

 

I know most Madagascar ammonites are altered in some way.

Entirely natural, methinks. :)

Very pretty.

They usually cut off the end of the living chamber on these, other than that it is "au natural".

That's the nacre which gives it the pretty rainbow colors.
