These fossilized Cleoniceras Ammonites are 140-million-years-old and were found in Mahajanga, Madagascar. They come in sliced pairs so you can see the spectacular patterns inside the shell. The polished finish allows the detail to stand out; the outer side is unfinished.
Dimensions: Each half is approximately 1/2" to 1"
Fossil Information: Ammonites are extinct cephalopods that lived in the oceans millions of years ago and are ancestors to the modern-day squid, octopus, and chambered nautilus. Ammonites were widespread around the globe and flourished for hundreds of millions of years.
Ammonites were first called Ammon's Stones for their resemblance to the ram's horns of Ammon, the ancient Egyptian god of life and procreation.
The ammonite you receive will be similar in size and quality to the examples shown in the above photo.
