This is a wholesale lot of 25 lbs of beautiful, polished ammonite fossils
from Madagascar. These ammonites are Late Cretaceous in age or approximately 110 million years old.
The ammonites range from 3.7" to 6.2" wide with most being around 5". They have been polished to reveal the beautiful, "oak leaf" suture pattern that lies under the shell of the animal.
At $450 for the lot, that is $25 per ammonite and they can easily retail for between 2-3x that wholesale price on average.
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.
