Alisha sculpted a fabulous organic setting for this stunning Marston Marble Ammonite neckpiece. The primordial setting she carved feels prehistoric and allows for both sides of the fossil to be admired. A 6mm Madeira Citrine is set in the bottom. The piece is lost wax cast in sterling silver and four lost wax cast ammonites are interspersed and soldered to make the fabulous chain. The Marston Ammonite Fossil is 1-1/2" high x 1-1/4" wide. The overall length of the pendant is 18". There is only one of these available.
This unique and stunning Marston Marble Ammonite fossil is from Marston Magna in Somerset, England. The most prevalent specimens were collected during the 18th and 19th centuries when limestone slabs were quarried and prized as decorative marble. The dark limestone is crowded with small ammonite concretions that make beautiful patterns.
Ammonites are an extinct marine mollusk in the class of Cephalopoda. Ammonites thrived from the beginning of the Jurassic period, 201 million years ago through the Cretaceous period, about 66 million years ago. Their distribution was worldwide in shallow warm seas Along with the dinosaurs, they died out during the mass meteor extinction when photosynthesis was interrupted. Their fossil skeletons are found in sedimentary rocks worldwide and are a good stratigraphy indicator for scientists.
