6.5" Jurassic Ammonite (Breydia) Fossil - Dorset, England

This is a 6.5" fossil ammonite, Breydia cf. newtoni from the Garantiana Zone in Dorset, England. It has been meticulously prepped free from the rock it was found in. Some rock has been left on the opposite side of the specimen in areas where the ammonite isn't complete.

It comes with an acrylic 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.
