Jewellery: Ammonite Pendant in Gift Box. Chain length approx 60 cm.
Ammonite Pendant and chain from Madagascar. Chain length approx 60 cm. The actual ammonite piece is approximately 3.5cm x 3.5cm. It is presented in a black gift box.
Please note that as the pendant is a natural item, it may vary slightly in colour, shape or size.
Ammonites were alive during the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. They were extinct by the end of the Cretaceous period ... roughly the same time that the dinosaurs disappeared.
This pendant has been sliced and polished to show crystal-filled internal chambers. When the Ammonite was alive the chambers would have contained gas, enabling it to keep buoyant in the water.
