Over the years of going to gem and mineral trade shows, I’ve collected many fossils. By far my favorite ones are #ammonites
This week I’m going through my fossils and setting them..I love how these two turned out!
I set the large one, (for sure a statement piece!) with sterling silver prongs to show the whole fossil off more and set the smaller ammonite with a sterling silver textured backplate to really set it off.
Both would look amazing worn during your next online meeting!
Both necklaces are for sale... so message me if you are interested in one!
I have several more #ammonite fossils ready to set, in a few sizes, so please message me if you are interested in a piece for yourself
Some interesting info for metaphysical use...
ammonites, with their spiral shape, are symbols of #change and #positive motion. The spiral draws in negative energy, filtering it through the chambers and releasing fresh, positive #energy...
We could all use that in2021!
AMMONITE FOSSIL background...
Ammonites became extinct 65 million years ago, roaming the oceans as far back as 200 million years ago! These sea creatures are #fossilized relatives of the chambered #nautilus shell.
The name "ammonite" was inspired by the spiral shape of the fossilized #shells, which somewhat resemble tightly coiled rams' horns. It is believed the name derived from the Greek God Ammon, who is typically depicted with rams' horns.
