Hi all,

I meant to post these a while back - found them in a geology shop in Vancouver while we were there in August. I saw the Orthoceras one first and was duly impressed but my mouth literally fell open when I saw the Goniatites one. The round one was about 20" in diameter and the oval one about 22" long.

And the detail in the center of the oval one. Beautifully carved/incorporated.

Beautiful! What are the platters themselves made from to allow the perfect imbedding?

I have a big belemnite one. Intend to try to get an ammonite one at the next gem and mineral show in Tucson. The same guy (from Morocco sells them.
