Ammonite Atlas Mountain 8 x 7cm

Ammonites are perhaps the most widely known fossil, possessing the typically ribbed spiral-form shell as pictured above. These creatures lived in the seas between 240 - 65 million years ago, when they became extinct along with the dinosaurs. The name 'ammonite' (usually lower-case) originates from the Greek Ram-horned god called Ammon.

Due to the nature of ammonite the size, shape and colour will vary slightly.
