Lytoceras Ammonite Sculpture - 12" Tall

This is a very aesthetic display piece with a pair of large Lytoceras ammonites (one polished, one rought) and a pair of smaller Pseudogrammoceras ammonites. The entire piece is 12 inches tall with the largest Lytoceras ammonite being about 8 1/2 inches tall.

These ammonites were quarried in the Rhône-Alpes region of France and are Lower Jurassic in age, approximately 180 million years old. The sculpture is a composite, meaning that while the ammonite fossils are real they have been mounted in an artificial matrix to create the display. All of the ammonites on this display were quarried from the same layer, so they would have been associated together in nature. All of the ammonites have some degree of restoration work.

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.
