Ammonite Oval Cab
Wonderful oval cab - cut form a beautifully preserved ammonite fossil specimen.
Rich brown tones with translucent areas in the chambers of the original shell.
Flat backed and polished on the face only.
Sometimes the cutters add a little resin to the backs of the cabs to ensure the backs are flat to aid setting. The natural contours of the ammonite shell are curved and leads to a naturally uneven back.
This cab has only a little resin to one end to even out the base of the gem. Can not be seen from the face. Please see photos.
28.3 x 21.5 x 4 mm.
