Beautiful Ammonite Pendant
Here is a beautifully crafted pendant featuring a real cut and polished ammonite fossils from Madagascar. This is a very unique piece of jewelry, the ammonite fossil featured in it is about 1 1/4 inches across. Would make a great gift.
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. Ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years ago and they barely survived several major extinction events. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
