A framed ammonite fossil specimen

Museum number: M1159

Curatorial note

This specimen has been carefully prepared: it is a section through an ammonite showing the internal structure. The numbering sequence of the Museum (as in the early 1837 inventories) proves that this piece hung next to another ammonite, M1158, showing the external appearance of a similarly sized fossil.
