Here is a cool specimen of Cleoniceras cleon from the Cretaceous of Madagascar. This distinct ammonite is extremely detailed and quite 3-dimensional in preservation. Both sides of the sharp-keeled ammonite have been polished to reveal the intricate suture pattern of the cephalopod. The ornate suture pattern is wonderfully displayed on both sides - the white sutures are quite striking against the dark-brown shell of the ammonite. This is a displayable example of Cleoniceras from the Cretaceous. (The white streak is in the photo and not on the specimen.)
