There are approximately 72 pieces in the lot and the ammonites range from 2 to 3" wide with most being the middle of that range. These ammonites are unpolished and unworked in a rough state.
At the lot price each ammonite is less than $4/each and they can easily retail for several times that amount.
Ammonites were predatory mollusks that resembled a squid with a shell. These cephalopods had eyes, tentacles, and spiral shells. They are more closely related to a living octopus, though the shells resemble that of a nautilus. Ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years ago and they barely survived several major extinction events. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
