Hoplitoidea - Koenen 1897

Hoplitoides Wohltmanni Ammonite 382mm

£2,192.00 GBP

A fine-looking Hoplitoides ammonite measuring 382mm and discovered in the heart of North Africa. This is a particularly large Hoplitoides, now placed upon our in-house fabricated bronze stand allowing the removal and study of this wonderful example. With a discuss shape, buoyant center and narrow keel we have polished the Hoplitoides ammonite for a more finished interpretation and display of the internal structure, now clearly visible and reveals a subtle soft colour palette with the chambers separated by quartz chalcedony vein lines.

Ammonoids are an extinct type of cephalopods, a group that includes modern-day octopi, squids and cuttlefish. Cephalopod named from the Greek and so aptly named, loosely translated to English as head-foot. The ammonoids range lasted from the Cambrian period around 500 million years up to the Cretaceous, some 65 million years ago, an immense period of time which led to much dimorphism between different genera.
