Intricate Ammonite and Garnet Gemstone Necklace
A natural ammonite fossil pendant, which is elegantly wire wrapped in sterling silver wire. The geometric fossil is accented with intricate weaves, swirls and spirals to complement its natural spiral form. A deep red garnet sits at the top of the pendant adding a touch of sparkle and color. The pendant is hung on silver-plated copper chain and packaged in a hand-stamped gift box.
Ammonites are fascinating sea creatures that went extinct over 60 million years ago; their closest living relative is the nautilus. The segments that form the spiraling pattern are chambers that were filled or emptied with water to allow the creature to control its buoyancy. The beautiful chambers also have proportions that fit the Fibonacci sequence, which is a list of numbers where every number is the sum of the previous two, creating a spiral. The Fibonacci sequence is considered an example of "sacred geometry", and the sequence can also be found many other places in nature (such as the proportions of pinecones and sunflowers).
SIZE: The pendant is ~ 2.1" x 1.1" at widest points. Chain length info below.
ANCIENT OCEAN COLLECTION: Numerous other fossil jewelry options are available in the new Ancient Ocean Collection, including the earrings shown in the last photo. Use the link above to browse the latest collection to see Kosmic Krystals’ new selection of ammonite and fossil coral jewelry.
CHAIN: The pendant is photographed on a silver-plated copper snake chain, available in lengths of 16 or 20 inches.The silver plating on the chain will eventually wear off, but its a great affordable option. I also have a variety of styles of sterling silver chains available to enhance your pendant, you can see photos in the Chain Section.
CLEANING: Silver will naturally darken, or tarnish, due to reactions with sulfides in the air. Each piece of Kosmic Krystals' silver jewelry comes with a non-tarnish strip and bag that prevents absorbing and trapping the sulfides and other pollutants in the air. If kept in a sealed bag or jewelry box with your silver jewelry the strip will prevent tarnishing for approximately 6 months. Ammonites should not be cleaned using any harsh silver or gemstone cleaners. Some tarnish can be removed with a polishing cloth, but deeper areas cannot be reached. However, this natural patina can give the piece an interesting antiqued look. Any dirt and debris can be easily removed with a gentle toothbrush and warm soapy water.
