8" Jurassic Ammonite & Gastropod Cluster - Fresney, France

Here is a beautiful association of Middle Jurassic marine fossils, collected from Fresney, France. The entire piece measures 8 x 6.8" and includes a pair of Stephanoceras ammonites along with two types of gastropods. The limestone has been painstakingly worked to bring the fossils out in high relief and create a gorgeous display piece.

Comes with a display stand.

The tip of the gastropod has a repaired crack.

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. True ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years ago. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
