Here is a very displayable example of Baculites sp. from the Cretaceous of South Dakota. Baculitidae are characterized by an ammonitella (coiled embryonic shell) followed by a long straight shaft. This specimen is a large portion of that shaft. This Baculites is still preserved in its natural concretionary matrix and is very 3-dimensionally preserved. The complex suture pattern is seen on one end, and the iridescent nacre is fully natural. This is a striking Baculites from the Pierre Shale.
