Ammonites in Shale
The Holzmaden Shale of Germany has produced another fabulous and decorative marine fossil specimen. This collage of aquatic history features a rust-colored ammonite perched atop various aquatic remnants, including a lone belemnite over two inches in length. The focal ammonite, approaching five inches, is fairly well preserved and has another smaller, partial shell peering out from behind it along with many other ribbed imprints of the ancient animals -- including some small, complete specimens embedded in the hard gray matrix.
