1.35" Fossil Ammonite Pendant - 110 Million Years Old

This is a beautiful pendant featuring a polished, 110 million year old ammonite fossil center. These ammonites are quarried in the Mahajanga Province province of Madagascar and lived at a time when dinosaurs ruled the earth. The polishing allows the stunning inner chambers to be seen which have been replaced by agate and rock over millions of years.

It comes with a 24" long, silver plated snake chain necklace.

Ammonites were predatory mollusks that resembled a squid with a shell. These cephalopods had eyes, tentacles, and spiral shells. They are more closely related to a living octopus, though the shells resemble that of a nautilus. True ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years ago. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
