Multi Colored Ammonite Pendant Inlaid with Abalone and Accented with Blue Sapphires and Green Tourmalines, Fossil Necklace in Sterling Silver
Ammonite fossil inlaid with abalone and set in sterling silver with two 3mm green tourmalines, two 3mm sapphires and one 5mm sapphire cabochon, this one of a kind pendant has iridescent flashes of blue, green and lilac. It measures 1 1/4" long (including the pendant loops) and is 1 1/8" wide at the widest point. I have listed a variety of chain options. I think a slightly heavier chain looks right with this and there is a 24" length for those who prefer a long pendant and a 16" length that sits at the base of your neck. Both of those are 2mm sterling silver wheat chains. Another option is a slightly thinner (1.5mm) chain that is 18". All have lobster claw catches. The pendant is also available by itself if you have your own chain.
Ammonites were sea creatures that were related to modern day squids and octopuses. One of the main differences is that they lived inside of a shell. Their shell was made from aragonite which is the same substance that pearls are made of. As they grew larger, they added chambers and the empty chambers helped them float. They were very common during the age of the dinosaur, about 425 million years ago. They died out and became extinct 66 million years ago. This ammonite has been inlaid with abalone which is a variety of marine snail which has an iridescent inner shell.
