‘Ammonites’, also ‘Ammonoidea’, are an extinct species of invertebrate animals that were particularly rich in shape and type. They populated the seas from the Lower Devonian to the end of the Cretaceous period, covering around 350 million years. In general, the outer shell of an adult ammonite measured between 1 and 30 cm in diameter. Fossilized ammonites were discovered rather late in history due to their inclusion in rock formations. It was not until 1884 that the first findings were documented, and they are not typically seen in the traditional Renaissance and Baroque cabinets of curiosities. Their technical term is borrowed from ancient writings of Pliny, who described fossils of snails as ‘Ammonis cornua’.
