Massive, 22.5" Ammonite Fossil With Stand - Sale Price

This an absolutely massive, 22.5" wide, polished ammonite fossil from the Mahajanga Province of Madagascar. We're not 100% certain of the genus, but it may be a supersized Cleoniceras. This giant ammonite weighs in at just under 60 lbs. About 90% of the shell is present on one side and about 70% on the other. In the areas where the shell is missing, the suture pattern underneath can be seen.

Comes with a metal 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.
