huge HOPLITES RUDIS
Reference : AMO104
The size is huge !!It comes from an old collection.
Name : HOPLITES RUDIS (Spath,1925)
AGE :lower Cretaceous , mid Albian
LOCATION : Courcelles quarry, Aube, France
COMMENTS : this extremely rare ammonite has a size of 25 cm !!! The courcelles quarry was closed 40 years ago , and there are no more possibilitys to dig there since it is now a lake... so there are only the ammonites always into the collections atht are available.
An ammonite from there is considered as big with a size of 12 cm; this one is 25cm!!Only a few of this size came out from the quarry. The shell is completely preserved .The previous owner told me there are few restorations , but those are completely invisible since I was not able to detect them.
This is a one of a kind possibility to acquire a rare ammonite of an uncommon size.
