The Ancient Ocean Collection
The collection is coming very soon, this Friday, July 15th!
The Ancient Ocean Collection combines the unique patterns of ammonite fossils and agatized fossil coral. The fossils are set with whimsical swirls and spirals of sterling silver wire that enhance their natural beauty and unique geometry. These oceanic fossils are woven together in an enchantingly elegant and magical style.
Ammonite Fossils: Deep Oceanic history and Intriguing Geometry
Ammonite fossils are generally sliced and polished to reveal their chambers. Many jewelry sets in the new collection are made using pairs of sliced ammonites, for you to share with the other half of your heart. A pair of ammonite necklaces are perfect for mother and daughters, mermaid loving sisters, or sea-enchanted couples.
Agatized Fossil Coral: Ancient Coral, Naturally Preserved
The proper term for the stone is "agatized fossil coral", because the cells of coral were gradually replaced by the gemstone agate. When the ancient coral was flooded with mineral rich water, the mineral silica (SiO2) replaced the cells of the coral.
Corals are marine animals who generally live in warm, shallow, tropical seas, (such as the Great Barrier Reef). They may be solitary or form large colonies. Fossil corals can be up to 450 million years old, and it is their skeleton that is fossilized with agate. The structure of the skeleton results in intricate geometric flower shaped patterns throughout the gemstone.
