This stunning cut and polished ammonite pair come from Madagascar. Ammonites are an extinct group of sea creatures. This ammonite, a Cleoniceras, was thriving during the Cretaceous Period approximately 110 million years ago. The ammonite shells are cut in half to display the beautiful mineralization which has occurred within their growth chambers.
This decorative Ammonite Fossil has been cut and polished to reveal the spectacular mineralization of the flotation chambers.
Ammonites have intrigued and fascinated humans for thousands of years. Many cultures – from Australian aboriginals to the ancient Egyptians – collected and treasured these prehistoric and beautiful fossils. Perhaps their lure has something to do with the Fibonacci spiral pattern of their shell, which mirrors the galaxies.
