This one-of-a-kind pendant features an original AMMONITE fossil. The peice is set in sterling silver and the fossil measures approximately 1 6/16th" x 1 3/16th".
Ammonites are the ancient equivalent to the modern-day chambered Nautilus. These sea faring squids built a chambered shell in which they would pump air into the empty chambers and float at different levels of the ocean in search of food. This inspired Jules Vern (the famous science fiction writer) to call the first submarine the Nautilus. Ammonites lived approximately 400 million years ago.
