Beautiful Ammonite Pendant With Topaz And Garnet

This is a beautiful pendant featuring a real cut and polished ammonite fossil which is approximately 110 million years old. It is made out of sterling silver and features two stones, a smoky topaz and a garnet. This is an elegant piece of jewelry with some real natural history appeal.

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.
