Every now and then I get something really cool in my collection that I get excited to share with you all. Thanks to my paleontologist friend @fossilmagic for gifting me these beauties. It's random acts of kindness that make this world a brighter place.
Superb Pyritized 1.31 Inch Goniatites Devonian Cephalopod
Impressive example of this Devonian cephalopod. It is naturally pyritized. It has undergone a taphonomic process of permineralization in Iron Sulfide (Pyrite). Permineralization is a process of fossilization in which mineral deposits form internal casts of organisms.
The characteristic lines of suture of this cephalopod of the Paleozoic can be perfectly observed. Nice specimen. ---- CHECK OUR WEBSITE! ---- #goniatites#devonian#cephalopods#pyritized#cefalopodo#jurassic#jurassicdreams#fossils#fósil
