Pearlized ancient Ammonite with Antique Brass Wire, Ammonites are extinct marine mollusks most commonly related to modern octopi, squids and to lesser extent nautiloids. The word ammonite was inspired by the spiral shape of the shell. Originally they were called ammonis cornua (Horns of Ammon) because this Egyptian god was typically depicted wearing ramís horns. It is though ammonites inhabited ancient shallow seas and succumbed to the same mass extinction responsible for the demise of the dinosaurs.
