This is a wholesale lot of whole polished Cleoniceras ammonite fossils
from the Mahajanga Province of Madagascar. They are Early Cretaceous (Albian Stage) in age, or approximately 110 million years old.
The lot includes 11
ammonites. They range from 5 to 6" wide with most closer to 5.5" and the entire lot weighs about 10 lbs
. They are grade B & C specimens meaning the shell may have been scuffed or some other imperfection before it was polished. The exterior of the ammonites are attractive with a mix of some showing iridescent shell preservation and others polished to show the "oak leaf" suture pattern underneath the shell. You will receive the exact lot pictured.
At the wholesale price each ammonite is $18 each and they can easily retail for several times that amount.
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.
