Swimming in from Timor Island, Indonesia, is Alisha's Fossilized Ammonite Nautilus Pendant. The detailed Nautilus is cast in solid sterling silver and is drilled and pegged securely into this one of kind Timor Island Ammonite. Alisha hand picked this unique ammonite fossil on one of our recent buying trip to Tucson Arizona. The overall diagonal length of the pendant is 2 3/4". Tucked away in my archival gemstone collection was this impressive 14 mm Citrine. It is the perfect accent stone for this pendant and is bezel set in the center of this unique ammonite.
Included in the price is a heavy 18" sterling silver anchor chain.
What is an Ammonite? Although it is easy to imagine that today’s Nautilus descended from the Ammonite, the extinct marine Ammonite was more closely related to the octopus, squid and cuttlefish then the nautilus. Ammonites belonged to the class Cephalopoda and first appeared during the Devonian age. Their spiral shape shells are beautiful and the species evolved over millenniums. Depending on ocean sediments and aquatic chemistry the fossilization process creates varied results. There are Ammonites with intricate jade patters; opalized, spiky, rainbow, red flash and pyritized Ammonites.
