Ammonites were ancient cephalopods that lived in the oceans during the Mesozoic Era, over 165 million years ago. They are closely related to modern-day squids and octopuses. Ammonites were very successful creatures, and their fossils can be found worldwide.
Ammonites went extinct at the end of the Cretaceous period, along with many other dinosaurs and marine reptiles. Their extinction is thought to have been caused by a combination of factors, including climate change, asteroid impacts, and volcanic eruptions.
Red ammonites are particularly rare and valuable due to the presence of iron oxide in their shells. The red color is a sign of the ammonite's age and the conditions in which it was fossilized.
