Cobble Creek: Small Ammonites (4oz) from Morocco 1/4 to 1/2"
4 ounces of tiny Ammonites from Morocco. These little ammonoids range in size from 1/4" to 1/2" on average. These little creatures are TINY! While being alive millions of years ago, these little specimens have fossilized very well with extreme details shown on each one. You will receive 4 ounces of these little creatures. On average, each 4 ounces include 60-80 tiny ammonites. These are great for craft/school projects, hand on science lessons or having a backyard fossil dig and or just adding to your fossil collection!
*NOTE: SOME photos show wet to better describe detail of each ammonite"
Each order will vary in size of each ammonite and photos to be used as reference point only. Some may have small imperfections or dings.
Ammonoids are an extinct group of marine mollusc animals in the subclass Ammonoidea of the class Cephalopoda. These molluscs are more closely related to living coleoids (i.e., octopuses, squid, and cuttlefish) than they are to shelled nautiloids such as the living Nautilus species. The earliest ammonites appear during the Devonian, and the last species died out during the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event.
Ammonites are excellent index fossils, and it is often possible to link the rock layer in which a particular species or genus is found to specific geologic time periods. Their fossil shells usually take the form of planispirals, although there were some helically spiraled and nonspiraled forms (known as heteromorphs).
The name "ammonite", from which the scientific term is derived, was inspired by the spiral shape of their fossilized shells, which somewhat resemble tightly coiled rams' horns. Pliny the Elder (d. 79 AD near Pompeii) called fossils of these animals ammonis cornua ("horns of Ammon") because the Egyptian god Ammon (Amun) was typically depicted wearing ram's horns. Often the name of an ammonite genus ends in -ceras, which is Greek (κέρας) for "horn".

Absolutely perfect! They're so tiny! I'll be putting them in bottle necklaces and miniature cloches, so the size range is exactly what I wanted. They arrived very quickly, packed in bubble wrap with the empty space in the box filled with tissue paper to keep the fossils safe. Thanks so much!
