Very nicely polished fossil from my parents estate. Ammonite on one end, but I don't know what the other end of the stone contains.

Orthoconic nautiloid. It's nice to have a straight and coiled one on the same slab.

That’s quite a nice plate and it is others described.

I agree. It’s a neat little display piece!

I agree with the others and the "ammonite" is actually a goniatite to be more precise.
