About the stone
Ammonites are probably the most well-known fossil and lived in the seas between 240-65 million years ago, when they became extinct along with the dinosaurs. The name ammonite originates from the Greek Ram-horned god called Ammon. Ammonites are believed to have lived in shallow warm waters and moved by jet propulsion.
When ammonites where first discovered they were thought to be snakes that had been turned into stone with their heads cut off. In order to perpetuate the legend, local collectors and dealers in fossils frequently carved heads on them. Used as charms, ammonites were thought to be a protection against serpents, and a cure for baldness and infertility.
Please be aware that the Ammonite can vary slightly in size from pendant to pendant.
At widest points (aprox) 35.6mm x 18.3mm. Ammonite 20mm x 17.3mm
