Polished Ammonite Pendant - Fiery Red Iridescent
Here is a unique piece of jewelry featuring a real 110 million year old ammonite fossil from Madagascar. This ammonite has an iridescent shell that appears as a deep red color when light hits hit from the right angle.
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.
