Tiny polished ammonite, Madagascar. Sold individually.


SKU: 8368

A choice of absolutely tiny cut & polished ammonites from Madagascar.  They have various shades of brown or golden calcite filling their chambers.  Each specimen is discreetly glued onto a base so that it stands nicely.  I think that these are the centres of larger fossils which have been worked down to this size.  I think that these will work in any of the miniature scales.

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.
