I’ve had trouble in the past setting the irregular shape of ammonites.

Sometimes, getting enough wire to secure the fossil also tended to overwhelm the delicate chambers.

I was happy to come up with this prong setting, using 22 gauge half hard wire for the frame and 24 gauge half hard for the prongs and back retaining wires.
