Bulk Large Polished Fossil Goniatite "Button" - 10 Pack

This is a polished, fossil Goniatite, a close relative of ammonites (same Subclass) that has been polished to reveal the inner chamber detail. These Goniatites are Devonian in age and are quarried from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.

Goniatites possessed a shell, which is divided internally into chambers filled with gas for buoyancy. An open chamber at the front of the shell provided living space for the animal. The general morphology and habit of goniatites was probably similar to that of their later relatives the ammonites, being free swimming and possessing a head with two well developed eyes and arms.

You will receive ten Polished Goniatite "Buttons" chosen at random from the box. They vary in size and quality. They range from approximately 1 1/2 to 2" wide with the fossil itself typically being about 1"

These bulk fossils are great for educational use, or gifts for kids.
