This is a beautiful necklace featuring several ammonites that have been cut and half and highly polished. These real fossils are 110 million years old and are mined in Madagascar. Wear a piece of natural history around your neck. The necklace is 20 inches in length.

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.
