Ammonites were predatory mollusks that resembled squid. These cephalopods had eyes, tentacles, and spiral shells. They are more closely related to a living octopus, though the shells resemble that of a nautilus. Ammonites first appearing in the fossil record 240 million years ago, descending from straight shelled cephalopods. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous Period. Only a few species of Ammonites survived each of several extinction events, and they are used as index fossils.This is a one of a kind piece.
-- Layers of copper have been permanently fused to an all natural ammonite slice using a process called electroforming. It can take anywhere from 4 - 24 hours to complete this process for each piece.
-- After the process is complete, your piece is finished by adding a patina to the copper, buffing, and sealing.
-- This beautiful ammonite slice has several druzy pockets that have formed over millions of years!
-- This one of a kind pendant hangs on a long soft and supple leather cord that you can tie to your preferred length.
