Wholesale Lot: 3 to 7.2" Polished Ammonite Fossils 22 pieces
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 22 polished ammonite fossils from near Sakaraha, Madagascar. The ammonites in this lot range from 3 - 7.2" across.
This lot is full of nicely polished ammonites, although several are more in the "scratch and dent" category, as they have small sections missing. The price of this lot reflects that.
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.
