3.5" Ammonite split polished pair with Calcite crystal filled chambers. Fantastic shades of color in the agatized and calcified chambers. The outer shell shows areas of red opalescent color, the gemstone Ammolite. The two sides of the pair measure 12mm and 10mm at their widest points. Ammonites are an extinct group of marine animals related to the modern day squid. The last of its surviving lines disappeared with the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, although this piece is much older. As it grew, it added newer and larger chambers to the open end of the spiral. Only the last and largest chamber was occupied by the living animal at any given moment. A top notch fossil specimen for display and study from Madagascar.
