Ammonite Fossil Specimens
We offer numerous fine ammonite fossils: Top-grade iridescent Canadian ammonites (ammolite), stunning pyritized specimens from Germany and Russia, gorgeous, cut & polished specimens from Madagascar, as well as heteromorphs from Morocco and Europe.
Ammonites have intrigued and fascinated humans for thousands of years. Many cultures from aboriginal bushmen in Australia, to the ancient Egyptians collected and treasured these prehistoric and beautiful fossils. Does it have anything to do with that Fibonacci spiral pattern of ammonites that mirrors the galaxies?
Ammonites belong to the Mollusca Phylum in a separate Class known as Cephalopods – the head-footed creatures like the present day octopus and squid. They swam in ancient oceans from the Devonian (about 400 million years ago) to their extinction along with the dinosaurs in the Cretaceous, 65 million years ago.
