Polished ammonite half, Madagascar


SKU: 8371

A truly tiny cut & polished ammonite from Madagascar.  This one has golden calcite filling its chambers.  It is discreetly glued onto a silver coloured base so that it stands nicely.  I think that this is the centre of a larger fossil which has been worked down to this size.  I think that this tiny fossil will work in any of the miniature scales.  The third photo is with 1:24 scale props (the zebra nerite shell is available as part of a trio of tiny shells).

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.

3/8 inch (0.95 cm) wide, 3/16 inch (0.5 cm) deep and just under 3/8 inch (0.95 cm) tall.
