These magnificent ammonites are really a wonder to behold. Photos don't do justice to the array or reds, blues, yellow and oranges shimmer beneath it's surface. We could spend hours holding one up to the light watching the brilliant aura of colors playing across the surface of these specimens. 

Known as 'Ammolite', the shimmering, metallic colours were caused by the combination of millions of years of compression and the mineralization of iron, copper and silica which precipitated from volcanic ash.

Ammonites lived during the periods of Earth history known as the Jurassic and Cretaceous. Together, these represent a time interval of about 140 million years. The Jurassic Period began about 201 million years ago and the Cretaceous Period ended about 66 million years ago.

Ammonites are one of the most common fossils that exist today. Before hitting extinction along with the dinosaurs, the squid-like creatures roamed the oceans in schools, using an organ called a siphuncle to jet through the water. Their remains are simply beautiful and a cornerstone of any nautical or fossil collection.
