Polished Perisphinctes ammonite 10
A Beautiful, Perisphinctes Ammonite from the Tulear Region of Madagascar. It dates from the Mesazoic Era, Upper Jurassic Series, Oxfordian Epoch, and is between 161m to 155m years old.
They were marine creatures related to today's Nautiloids, and swam using air for buoyancy in the chambers of their shells.
Imagine these creatures bobbing around in the ocean, searching for their next meal.
It has been highly polished, to show the beauty of the exterior shell of the creature.
The colours vary from fossil to fossil, so each one is unique
A wonderful display item.
A terrific, and unusual gift.
Ammonite size: 6.4cms diameter
