Ammonites are extinct marine molluscs of the class Cephalopodia that appeared midway through the Paleozoic Era (400 mya). They typically had a ribbed spiral-form shell that encased soft body parts and a hardened beak. Ammonites had a wide dispersion and their remains have been found in large numbers around the world.
This highly detailed, museum grade model (115 mm long x 70 mm high - scale 1:1) is made of composite gypsum and plastic materials and has been created by paleoartist Bruce Currie using state of the art 3D printing technology. After initial printing the model undergoes a secondary process that enhances surface quality, accentuates colouration and provides protection against UV damage and handling. This model also receives a small amount of hand finishing before being packaged and shipped along with a detailed information card.
