Ammonites

Dactylioceras cluster

An attractive cluster of Dactylioceras ammonites from Schlaiffhausen in Germany. The ammonites themselves are a rusty orange colour, standing out from the muddy brown matrix. Whatever happened at this site 165 million years ago, it was a very bad day for ammonites.

20-25cm block, ammonites 2-6cm
