6" Stunning Fossil Ammonite Display With Pyrite

This is a beautiful, decorative display piece of real ammonite fossils from the Saratov Region of Russia. These ammonites are Middle Jurassic (Upper Callovian Stage) or approximately 161-164 million years old. There are four types present Quenstedticeras, Vertumniceras, Peltoceras & Eboraciceras. The ammonites have an beautiful natural iridescent shell, and have been aesthetically mounted (they were not found this way) on a base of calcite. There are 10 ammonite fossils in total with the largest being 2.4" across and the entire display is 6" tall.

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.
