Alisha hand picked this fabulous pyritized fossilized ammonite on our recent trip to Tucson. Pyritized Ammonites in the appropriate size and of good quality are hard to come by. Pyritizing is the process of the mineral pyrite, replacing a fossil. The intricate and lacy open pattern of the ammonite sparkles with minute pyrite crystal formations. The detailed Nautilus is cast in solid sterling silver and is drilled and pegged securely into the ammonite. The overall length of the pendant is 2" from the top of the bail to the tip of the tentacles. A 5mm Mexican Fire Opal is bezel set in the center of the ammonite shell.
All Marty Magic Jewelry is packaged in a beautiful box, embossed with the gold foil Marty Magic dragon logo. Perfect for any occasion!
