5.8" Wide Polished Fossil Ammonite "Dish" - Inlaid Ammonite

 
This is a 5.8" fossil ammonite (Cleoniceras) dish from Madagascar. There is a second agatized ammonite inlaid into the center of the larger one. It could be used as a very unique dish or looks amazing as just a stand alone display.

Comes with an acrylic stand.



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. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
