The centerpiece of this necklace contains a large polished cabochon of rich red petrified and agatized dinosaur bone and a sliced fossil ammonite from Madagascar. The cell structure is very evident in this piece of red dinosaur bone, which is one of the most prized colors. This bone is from the Upper Jurassic period in the Morrison Formation, which centers in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. Ammonites, which were cephalopods, lived in the oceans in the Mahajanga and Tulear regions of Madagascar during the Lower Jurassic and the Cretaceous Periods, and shared the same extinction dates as the dinosaurs. I set the polished stone and the ammonite slice in serrated sterling silver bezel, and backed both with 24 gauge sterling sheet. I created the hanger with sterling tube wrapped ornately with half round sterling silver. Sarah then ran the beads through the hanger, and included colors that would repeat and contrast with the rust reds, black, and browns of the centerpiece. These beads include Pietersite, Tiger iron, brecciated red agate, red tiger's eye, red jasper, cultured pearls, and Czech glass. There are multiple sizes of sterling silver spacer beads, and larger diamond shaped sterling focal beads to add to the silver sparkle of the piece. The hook and loop clasp is also sterling silver. This necklace is 20 inches in length, and the pendant centerpiece measures 3 inches long, by 1 3/8 inches wide. This amazing piece, full of rich rust reds, will surely become an object of great discussion! Perfect for the Paleontologist dinosaur lover!
