Beautiful ammonites cut in half to be able to observe their internal chambers. It can be purchased individually or in pairs.
The Ammonites were a group of cephalopods with a spiral shell, which thrived in the Mesozoic oceans, and abruptly went extinct along with the dinosaurs. Its collective name refers to its resemblance to the spiral horns of a ram, with which the Egyptian god Amun was depicted in his Roman adaptation (Jupiter-Amun).
The group, numbering some 10,000 species, disappeared 65 million years ago, providing uncompromising support for biological evolution and evidence for our planet's changing biodiversity.
