Ammonite Fossil From Drügendorf

Unidentified ammonite fossil from Drügendorf, Germany of the Jurassic period (Kimmeridgian).  It is currently be prepped as you can see the air scribe marks on the internal whirl.  Thanks to Dave of Views of the Mahantango for this fossil.  Also thanks to Kenny for letting me photograph the fossil on his work table, he is still working on prepping.  I believe the marks will be air blasted smooth on the fossil surface next.

A new prep tool was used to help clear the excess matrix called Air Scriber 8315B with carbide stylus.
