Fossil shell of a Marine Cephalopod


The Fossil Ammolite (Ammonite Shell) Display is a remarkable and captivating product that brings to light a relic from Earth's distant past, dating back to the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 76 to 70 million years ago. This unique display showcases the beautifully preserved shells of ancient ammonites, which are now known as Ammolite. These fascinating specimens have a rich history deeply rooted in the geological and paleontological discoveries of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.


The Late Cretaceous period was a time when Earth's seas teemed with an astonishing diversity of marine life, and ammonites, distant relatives of modern-day squid and nautilus, were among the most abundant and varied creatures of the seas. Ammonites were characterized by their coiled, spiral-shaped shells, and they played a crucial role in the marine ecosystem of their time. These organisms are believed to have gone extinct along with the non-avian dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous period, making their fossilized remains a vital source of information for scientists studying prehistoric life.


The Fossil Ammolite (Ammonite Shell) Display offers a piece of this ancient world, sourced from the Bear Paw Formation in Alberta, Canada. This location has been renowned among paleontologists for its exceptional preservation of ammonite fossils, providing a unique and valuable insight into the lives of these enigmatic creatures. Each display contains an individual, one-of-a-kind Ammolite specimen, showcasing the intricate patterns and iridescent colors that have developed over millions of years due to mineralization processes. Beyond their scientific significance, these displays serve as a beautiful reminder of the Earth's profound history, making them both a scientific treasure and a piece of natural artistry.


Every individual Ammolite fossil shell piece within the collection will possess distinctive characteristics and come in varying sizes, ensuring each one is truly one-of-a-kind.
