Very stunning Nautilus fossil from Madagascar. This splendid Nautilus still almost completely preserves the shell and has been replaced by calcite minerals. The Nautilus comes from the jungles of Mahajanga on the northwestern coast of Madagascar, an island off the east coast of Africa. This fossil is 120 million years old dating back to the Cretaceous period. The Nautilus are still living beings and live in the Indo-Pacific ocean living in deep coral reefs. This piece would be ideal for a collector given its fantastic conservation, or (as it is often used), as a unique piece of interior decoration.
