"This Ammonite Split Pair 4-5 cm W from Madagascar has been cut in half and polished, revealing the chambers which are dark. Each half of the nautiloid is between 4 and 5 centimeters across. You will receive both halves as pictured here.

Nautiloids are still around today. They were the ancestors of the Ammonites. They were cepalopods and are related to modern sqiid and octopus. They had a spiral shell and were capable of moving through the water column "swimming" horizontally and and moving up or down by adjusting their boyancy. All ammonites were predators. There were many species of ammonites. They lived from the mid Paleozoic era through the entire mesozoic finally going extinct with the dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous Period. Madagascar produces some of the most beautiful ammonite fossils in the world with chambers filled with agate or sometimes empty and lined with crystals!"
