DESCRIPTION: This is a richly golden pyrite, enormous Harpoceras falcifer ammonite beautifully centered within a slightly rectangular 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 shale, 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!
