A VERY LARGE GROUP OF AMMONITES

180 million years B.C., Madagascar

The central ammonite surrounded by smaller ones, mounted on the reconstructed matrix (base stone), stabilized with iron pins in the core.

H. 56 cm


Note:

This is a cluster of Ammonites on matrix or base rock, dates back from 180 million years and is truly a wonder of nature.
Ammonites are fossilized Ammonoids, which are an extinct group of marine mollusk animals in the subclass Ammonoidea and ammonoid cephalopods became extinct along with the dinosaurs at the close of the Cretaceous era.

Ammonites are fascinating fossils to study, and it is believed to carry metaphysical benefits. The spiral shaping is thought to symbolize continual change, and it is believed that because of their great age they have absorbed energy throughout the eons and can be used to stimulate Chi (life-force).
