Lot: 5 to 5 1/2" Polished Ammonite Fossils - 10 Pieces

This is a wholesale lot 10 beautiful, polished ammonite fossils from Madagascar. These ammonites are Late Cretaceous in age or approximately 110 million years old.

The ammonites range from 4.9" to 5.5" with most being closer to 5" and combined the lot weights 12 1/2 lbs.

At $150 for the lot, that is only $15 per ammonite and they can easily retail for several times that price 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.
