Description

All of our Fossils are 100% Genuine Specimens & come with a Certificate of Authenticity!

Specimen: Silver/Grey Ammonite
Age: Cretaceous Period
Location Found: Madagascar

Ammonites are one of the most recognisable fossils around, this is due to their familiar spiral shape shell, reminiscent of what we know as a snail shell, though these creatures are not related to snails at all! They were marine animals, present between 240 – 65 million years ago, who had a coiled external shell similar to that of the modern nautilus, and although they resembled a modern day nautilus, these molluscs are more closely related to living coleoids (i.e. octopuses, squid, and cuttlefish!)

These beautiful whole Ammonites have an amazing colourful pearlescent shimmer to them.

    Just a quick note to say that all arrived safely today, and I am one VERY happy customer. Thank you very much: everything was perfect. The ammonites were amazing, the stones stunning, and the fish was ichthyob-b-b-brilliant! So much detail in such a small creature-wow! I may well frame it, and I am definitely spotlighting the ammnite to bring out their colourful sparkles.
