Fossil ammonite, Madagascar


SKU: 6354

This fossil ammonite has been lightly polished, and you can see some flashes of red iridescence!  It comes from Majunga, Madagascar and is discreetly and permanently attached to a sterling silver stand.  

Ammonites are extinct relatives of modern day nautiloids and squid. The largest known ammonite in the world would have been 8 1/2 feet (2.59 metres) across if it were complete.

1 1/16 inches (2.7 cm) wide, 3/8 inch (0.95 cm) deep and 1 1/16 inches (2.7 cm) tall.
