Species:  Unknown (likely Cleoniceras)

Age: 149 Million Years Old (Jurassic)

Location: South of France

This Cleoniceras specimen is approximately 8” in diameter. It is nicely sized for the serious collector, and it can easily be displayed on most anyone's selves or tables as either an excellent accent to one's surroundings, or behind glass, one can easily appreciate that the specimen's form has not been altered, as have many others which come on the market.

Cleoniceras is a rather involute, high-whorled hoplitid from the Lower to basal Middle Albian of Europe, Madagascar, and Transcaspian region. The shell has a generally small umbilicus, arched to acute venter, and typically at some growth stage, falcoid ribs that spring in pairs from umbilical tubercles, usually disappearing on the outer whorls.
