This magnificent Ammonite Fossil is beautifully polished and covered with fascinating patterns. Resembling fronds of seaweed, these patterns are perhaps the result of the fronds being pressed against the shell during fossilisation and make this a truly wonderful gift from a bygone era.
Living 135 - 395 million years ago, ammonites swam freely in the world's oceans and leave wonderful fossils. This large ammonite fossil makes a stylish and fascinating ornament and a gorgeous way to bring the wonder of natural history into your home.
Cephalopods were marine, highly mobile swimmers, generally carnivorous.
They achieved buoyancy by achambered shell connected by a siphuncle
to exchange pressure of gas thus adjusting density.
