DPS Ammonite

This is a fantastic piece. The fossils are real and don't appear to have been cemented together by humans. Also note that the fossils have imperfections; some are fractured or broken. You see small parts of fossils beneath. These are good signs and show that the placement of the fossils were made by Mother Nature not by a human. A human creating a fake piece tends to arrange each fossil in an artistic manner and pose each fossil to show its best side.

 

Buy it if you get a good price.

This block is also quite alright, although I don't think that the ids are all correct. Of course it's been prepped. Most fossils which are offered have been.
