Polished ammonite disc, Morocco
A polished stone disc with an ammonite fossil from Morocco. It is discreetly and permanently attached to a gold coloured stand.
Ammonites are extinct relatives of modern day nautiloids and squid. The largest known ammonite in the world would have been 8 1/2 feet (2.59 metres) across if it were complete, so although this is a fairly large piece in 1:12 scale it is entirely appropriate.
7/8 inch (2.2 cm) wide, 5/16 inch (0.8 cm) deep and 1 inch (2.5 cm) tall.
