What happened to this ammonite


Recommended Posts

Hello all


I have had this ammonite for quite some time now, but since it has been tucked away in a drawer for the last couple of months.

There is something weird about this piece however. The front looks pretty normal, except is a bit deformed.

But on the back, it looks like the ammonite exploded. Hard to explain so I hope the pictures help. I've heard of exploded ammonites before so I wonder if this is one.




Thanks all for your help:)

That's what remains of outer whorl. The ammonite was bigger initially

That was fast and totally makes sense. Thanks:)
