Tiny fossil ammonite, Morocco


SKU: 8970

This is a complete tiny enrolled fossil ammonite from Morocco.  It has a lot of detail, especially on the one side, and looks very much like a rolled up woodlouse/pillbug.

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.

5/16 inch (0.8 cm) wide, 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) deep and just under 3/8 inch (0.95 cm) tall.
