Description

This is an authentic Ammonite fossil pendant flat bezel set in sterling silver with a hinged bale.

The Ammonite pendant including the bale measures 55 mm x 35 mm. The bale alone is 12 mm long and has an internal diameter of 6 mm. The pendant weighs 15.5 grams.

Once every few years I get the chance to sort through and high grade ammonite fossils. This represents the very best available with a fully intact spiral and high definition between segments. Good quality comes in approx. 1 out of 100 pieces as most of the fossils become damaged during their 100+ million year journey to my workbench. After selecting perfect specimens, each ammonite must be cut thinner as most are too thick and heavy for jewelry. After cutting the back thinner, a touch up surface polish is done and they can proceed to be bezel set in silver.

These are the most colorful ammonites in the world coming only from Madagascar. These particular Ammonites are on average 115 million years old and this species has been around for 400 million years.
Ammonite fossils have been found on mountain tops at 4.5 feet or 1.6 meters in circumference.
The Ammonite was a squid like creature that created its own shell. Its closest relative is the chambered nautilus which still lives today in our deepest oceans. The Ammonite lived in the first segment of the shell and filled the other chambers with water or air to suspend itself in the correct temperature of water for procreation.

This is a perfect example of the Fibonacci sequence (perfect natural spiral) found throughout nature. The open cavities seen on some of the the segments of a few of the ammonites are actually geodes lined with tiny quartz and calcium crystals and are completely natural adding unique beauty and character to the piece.

Care notes:
This pendant may be worn in water without consequence however, do not clean the stone with corrosive cleaning agents as it may dull the high polished surface. A silver polishing cloth is the safest and easiest way to clean your silver and stones.

FAQs

Unfortunately I'm unable to accept custom orders or resizing requests at this time.
The best way to keep silver looking bright is to use a dry silver polishing cloth. This not only eliminates cleanup of wet polishing compounds but also ensures that your stone does not become damaged in the process. Never use ultrasonic cleaners on natural stones.
Unfortunately I cannot offer to resize rings. Close fitting sizes can usually be refit inexpensively with a local jeweler in your area.
Our orders are sent discrete and with enough protection to keep it safe in its journey without adding unnecessary costs to shipping.
We are happy to include a personalized note in your order although gift wrapping is not available.
