Milk Chocolate With Hazelnut Ammonite
A generous helping of hazelnut pieces are mixed with delicious milk chocolate and then carefully crafted to create these larger sized ammonites. Each box contains 8 ammonites each measuring 2.5 cm in diameter at its widest point and weighing 6g .
The earliest ammonites appear during the Devonian period, 420 – 358 mya, with the last species dying out during the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event that also wiped out the dinosaurs. They lived in shallow seas and having hard shells, ammonites formed fossils easily. As ammonites evolved over time, their anatomy changed and this allows them to be used as a fossil calendar to determine the age of many sedimentary rock layers.
