This 3.1cm Polished Half Ammonite Pendant, is made with an attractive polished half ammonite, and set into hallmarked 925 Sterling Silver. The simple lightweight setting has been hand crafted and specially made to fit this lovely specimen. The colours inside this ammonite range from yellow to shades of caramel brown and also dark brown. The actual ammonite species is the Fire Ammonite, with traces of opalescence showing on the back. These Ammonites date back to the Cretaceous period, 120 million years ago. This species of ammonite comes from the North West Coast of Madagascar in the Mahajanga jungle.

Ammonites have been extinct for 65 million years, and are a form of Cephalopod, a group of marine molluscs. These first appeared in the Devonian Period, over 4oo million years ago. As the ammonite grew larger it added new chambers to the shell, with the Ammonite only living in the newest and largest chamber. The name Ammonite, derives from from ‘Ammon’ the Greek God. Ammonites were plankton feeders, they also had long tentacles, and swam upright. Altogether, there were in the region of ten thousand different species. Ammonites became extinct 65 million years ago. The squid together with the octopus and also cuttlefish that swim in our seas today however, are closely related.
