Add to Cart
This is a lovely 925 Silver Ammonite fossil pendant with very special silver work. It was finely crafted in Nepal. The fossil chanber details are excellent and the silver smith paid great attention to to the setting and added a fancy ridge like border and enclosed the fossil's edges in the back to see to it that it endures through time. The fossil has a light transluscent Burgundy color with some grey and black.

Some history of Ammonites.

The Ammonites or Ammonoid Cephalopods appeared in the late Silurian period about 400 million years ago. They became extinct along with the dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous period 65 million years ago. There name comes from their spiral shape appearing similar to rams horns. This name can be traced back to the Greeks comparing them to the Egyptian god of Ammon who is depicted as wearing Rams horns. They likely ate fish, crustaceans, and other small creatures. They themselves were preyed upon by large marine reptiles like Mosasaurs and some shells even bear the teeth marks from such attacks.
