Fossil Ammonite Heart Earrings - Sterling Silver

Here is a pair of heart shaped sterling silver earrings made out of a 110 million year old, cut and polished 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 The polishing allows the stunning inner chambers to be seen which have been replaced by agate over millions of years.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.
