Add to Cart
This is an amazing hand braided natural Ammonite fossil pendant necklace. The fossil comes originally from Madagascar. It has a lovely transluscent light Amber color.

It was made by a man on Kowsan road in Bangkok.

The necklace string consists of a strong woven fiber. The string has a very slight waxy feel to it as the braider needed to apply wax to it when making it. He said water would not hurt it so if desired some light soapy washing should removed it if desired.

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.
