Therehese Ammonite fossils date from the Cretaceous Period, making them between 70 and 100 million years old. Ammonites are now extinct.

The creature which inhabited this type of shell, was more like a squid than a snail. The head protruded from the shell, ending with squid-like tentacles. Very little else is known about these creature's soft parts, or their life habits.

Madagascan Ammonites come mainly from Tulear, but we also have some from Mahajanga. The Ammonites from these two areas are quite different from eachother, and quite recognizable.

Most of the Ammonites are either polished, or sliced open. This often enhances the specimen, as the surface patterns become visible, as does the Opalization of certain specimens. The sliced Ammonite pairs are also lovely as the internal patterning, caused by the chambers, is very interesting. We do have a few unworked specimens on offer.
