Ammonites are extinct mollusks. Imagine a squid with a chambered shell. While they resembled the nautilus, they are more closely related to the octopus. They lived in the last and biggest chamber of their shells, out of which they poked their eyes and tentacles. Ammonites survived several major extinctions from about 400 million years ago until 65 million years ago.
This is half of an ammonite shell sits on a brass stand about 23cm tall and 13cm wide.
