Lot: 20 Lbs Polished Ammonite Fossils - 30 Pieces

This is a wholesale lot of 20 lbs of beautiful, polished ammonite fossils from Madagascar. These ammonites are Late Cretaceous in age or approximately 110 million years old.

The ammonites range from 3.4" to 5.5". They have been polished, some retaining some iridescent shell, with others showing some of the suture pattern that lies under the shell.

At $250 for the lot, that is just over $8 per ammonite and they can easily retail for more than 3x that on average.

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.
