A gorgeous, ancient Orthoceras fossil was combined with sterling silver to create this unique one-of-a-kind pendant. This type of fossil is related to the modern day squid and is approx. 350 million years old. They are found in the Sahara Desert of Morocco where they were once ocean dwellers. Their shells were preserved in the black marble in which they are found today.

I designed the pendant to follow the shape of the fossil, and then sawed it out of solid sterling silver sheet. I hand stamped the silver with several different stamping tools to create a subtle texture pattern, and then oxidized, buffed and polished the metal to bring out the detail. The fossil is securely fastened onto the silver with sterling silver wire.

The pendant measures approx. 3" long by 1- 1/2" wide (at its widest point). It is signed on the back with the sterling stamp and my initials. It comes on an 18" solid sterling silver snake chain which has a lobster claw closure.

***** If you would like to purchase this pendant WITHOUT the chain -- please contact me, and I can quote you a price for the pendant only.

**** If you need another length or style of chain, please contact me. I have a few different lengths and styles available and can substitute the chain that is featured for a different one. Please note that there *may* be a slight additional charge depending on the alternate style or length of chain you select.

This necklace would make a great gift for a history or nature lover....or for yourself! It is like wearing a little piece of history!

PLEASE NOTE: The item might appear larger in the photo that it actually is. Please go by the measurements in the written description (above). Some of the photos are enlarged to show the detail.
