This helically spiralled fossilized shell is the remnant of an extinct mollusc closely related to modern-day cephalopods such as the octopus and cuttlefish. Its name derives from Pliny the Elder's description "Ammonis Cornua" which translates as "Horns of Ammon" (Ammon being an Egyptian god often depicted with goat horns).
Discovered in Erfoud at the border between Algeria and Morocco this small ammonite is from a subclass known as Acanthoceras that lived during the Cenomanian stage of the Late Cretaceous period. So at over 100 million years old this is a fascinating and attractive piece of pre-history that will look delightful displayed in your home.
Award-winning designer Dagmar Holubova has sourced this beauty with an attractive black metal stand to show off the Ammonites features. It is a piece currently included in Designer's Atelier's "Cabinet of Curiosities".
