This naturally pyritized Pleuroceras ammonite was collected in Germany and is roughly 185 million years old. Despite its small size, the pyrite adds a noticeable weight to the specimen.
This ammonite has been brushed to bring out a more brilliant golden shine from the natural, more dull color of the pyrite.
