Wholesale: 7 to 8" Cut Ammonite Pairs (Grade B/C) - 5 Pairs
We just launched our new wholesale areas. Check out the wholesale fossils, minerals & crystals section for more listings. Very little of the wholesale inventory that we currently have in stock is listed on the website. If there is something specific you are looking for, or if you are looking to purchase different quantities, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (866) 550-2013This is a wholesale lot of large, cut and polished Cleoniceras ammonite fossils from the Mahajanga Province of Madagascar. They are Early Cretaceous (Albian Stage) in age, or approximately 110 million years old.
The lot includes 5 ammonites (both halves). They range from 7 to 8+" wide with being closer to 8" . The entire lot weighs about 17 lbs. They are grade B & C specimens meaning many of the chambers visible in the interior of the ammonite are not well defined or had been filled with mud prior to fossilization. The exterior of the ammonites are attractive with a mix of some showing iridescent shell preservation and others polished to show the "oak leaf" suture pattern underneath the shell. You will receive the exact lot pictured.
At the wholesale price each ammonite (both halves) is $90 each and they can easily retail for 2-3 times that amount.
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. Ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years ago and they barely survived several major extinction events. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
