1 3/4 - 2 1/4" Polished Ammonite Fossils - Madagascar

 
These are beautiful, polished Cleoniceras ammonite fossils from the Mahajanga Province, Madagascar. The polishing allows for the distinctive "oak leaf" suture pattern that lies underneath the shell of the ammonite to be seen.

These ammonites range from 1 3/4 to 2 1/4" in width with most in the middle of the size range. The photos are representative of the ammonites you will receive but are not the exact specimens. Quantity discounts are available.



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.
