DESCRIPTION: This is a huge and absolutely gorgeous, golden pyrite Harpoceras falcifer ammonite beautifully centered in the upper half of a trapezoidal slab of rich black Holzmaden shale.  The delicate in-parallel wavy suture pattern extends perpendicularly along the length of the helical shell, yielding a specimen that is in bold contrast texturally to the surrounding smooth, wavy jet black slate, with several small partial ammonites orbiting the primary specimen.  A masterpiece of nature, this melds science and art in a glorious expression of color and texture!
