1.6" Ammonite Fossil - Boulemane, Morocco

This is 1.6", unidentified fossil ammonite from Morocco. It is still partially imbedded in the stone in which it was found. This specimen has a number of other fossils imbedded in the rock and a cluster of quartz crystals growing on the reverse side.

Ammonites were predatory mollusks that resembled a squid with a shell. These cephalopods had eyes, tentacles, and spiral shells. They are more closely related to a living octopus, though the shells resemble that of a nautilus. Ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
