This is a wholesale lot of 10 silver iridescent ammonite fossils collected in the Mahajanga Province of Madagascar. They all measure between 5-6" wide and the entire lot weighs 15 lbs.

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.
