Fossil Ammonite Earrings - 110 Million Years Old

This is a beautiful pair of earrings featuring a cut and polished, 110 million year old ammonite fossil. 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 The polishing allows the stunning inner chambers to be seen which have been replaced by agate over millions of years.

Ammonites are an extinct type of cephalopod related to the modern day octopus and squid. They had shells in which they lived that are commonly preserved as fossils.
