Great Lower Jurassic Ammonite (Asteroceras) Display - England

This is a displayable piece with a pair of green-colored, Lower Jurassic Asteroceras ammonite fossils. The ammonites measure 4.35" and 2.7" wide and the base of the stone has been cut flat so that it displays nicely without a display stand.

Ammonites were predatory cephalopod mollusks that resembled squids with spiral shells. They are more closely related to living octopuses, though their shells resemble that of nautilus species. True ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years ago during the Triassic Period. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
