Photos do it no justice though.. The Ammolite has lots of reds, oranges, yellows and greens..

This Ammonite is a Placenticeras meeki Boehm from the Bearpaw Shale of central Montana... Average 175,000,000 years old...

Very nice. I especially like the way the suture pattern has been highlighted..

Oh, I wish we could see the colors you describe. I know that is very hard to photo. They are very large and have been cleaned/polished so well to show the great patterns, that is for sure!
