Ammolite & Ammonite

We currently have an absolutely gorgeous ammonite slice with pieces of ammolite gently and artistically implemented into the fossil. Incorporating a beautiful array of colors, each pendant attests to the fact that Autumn has arrived. Bundle up in your warm Autumn apparel and bedazzle it by selecting one of our colorful ammolite pendants!

What is an ammonite?
            An ammonite is an ancient marine animal that has been extinct for over 65 million years. It’s name was derived from the Egyptian god Ammon because the fossil looks like a ram’s horn and Ammon had the horns of a ram.

What is ammolite?
            Ammolite is a gemstone that is found on the outside of the shell of an ammonite. Much like a pearl, ammolite is constructed with nacre. It is a biogenic gemstone meaning it is a byproduct of a living creature or what used to be a living creature, which is a very rare case.
