5.9" Wide Polished Fossil Ammonite "Dish" - Madagascar

 
This is a 5.9" fossil ammonite (Cleoniceras) dish from Madagascar. It could be used as a very unique dish or looks amazing as just a stand alone display.

Comes with an acrylic stand.



Ammonites were predatory mollusks that resembled a squid with a shell. These cephalopods had eyes, tentacles, and spiral shells. They are more closely related to a living octopus, though the shells resemble that of a nautilus. Ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years ago and they barely survived several major extinction events. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
