Details: These are RARE natural Fossils. They are halved so the insides of the creature show.
Because these are natural fossils, please expect some to show their million year old patina and some cracking or irregularities. Please look at ALL the photos to see details of the beads you may receive. The photos shown are indicative of the lots yours will be chosen from at random.

Your stand of of 8 or 9 beads will be chosen at random.

They vary in sizes from approximately 55mm -30 mm. We cannot break up the strands.

They have a smooth polished front surface but the back remains rough. Some of the beads show the iridescence that is typical of ammonite fossils but many of them are rough and don't show the the iridescence. These are NATURAL fossils there is some surface fractaling and pitting due to the inconsistencies in the natural shell and the age of these. They are polished nicely and are good specimens for jewelery artists or collectors.


About AMMONITE Fossils:

Ammonites, as they pertain specifically to the order Ammonitida, are an extinct group of marine. Fossils, such as many found in Madagascar and Alberta (Canada), display iridescence. These iridescent ammonites are often of gem quality (ammolite) when polished. In no case would this iridescence have been visible during the animal's life; additional shell layers covered it.

Ammonite fossils became less abundant during the latter part of the Mesozoic, with none surviving into the Cenozoic era. The last surviving lines disappeared along with the dinosaurs 65 million years ago in the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event.
