Pyritized Ammonite Fossil Pendant in Sterling Silver with Aquamarine. Heather Jordan Heather Jordan Jewelry
This gorgeous, woven-wire pendant is composed of a pyritized ammonite fossil, polished on the open face to show the internal compartments, lovingly cradled in solid Sterling silver wire. The wire was also coated in a clear lacquer to resist tarnish and preserve the aged finish of the piece over time. Faceted gem-quality aquamarine beads cascade down the sides, as if riding water currents feeding into a wave of foamy, silver water. The outer shell of the ammonite on the back of the pendant was left in it's natural state. The pendant comes suspended on your choice of chain and measures 44x33x18mm (1.8» X 1.3» X 0.7»).

Ammonites are extinct marine molluscs, most closely related to modern octopi, squids and, to a lesser extent, nautiloids. The word, “ammonite”, was inspired by the spiral shape of their shells. Originally, they were called ammonis cornua («horns of Ammon») because this Egyptian god was typically depicted wearing ram's horns. It is thought ammonites inhabited ancient shallow seas and succumbed to the same mass extinction responsible for the demise of the dinosaurs.

Rugged, organic and gorgeous, this pendant truly reflects the raw beauty of nature's finest treasures. Your pendant will arrive in a lovely gift box and ship securely in a padded envelope with international tracking and insurance from my studio to your chosen destination.

*Comes with a signed certificate of authenticity, filled in & signed by the artist; photo of the piece & materials are listed on the reverse side of the card.
