This Ammolite Pendant Necklace is handcrafted in Sterling Silver with 14K recycled gold details and sterling chain. The chain length is 17'. The pendant is roughly 1" round. This necklace will be shipped with a small information card about Ammolite.
Ammolite is an opal-like organic gemstone found primarily along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains of North America. It is made of the fossilized shells of ammonites (shown above), which in turn are composed primarily of aragonite, the same mineral contained in nacre, with a microstructure inherited from the shell. It is one of few biogenic gemstones; others include amber and pearl.
This amazing gem represents growth and journey as well as using one’s past to support their present. Approximately every month the creature would create a new larger chamber to occupy and move into as it grew larger. It back-fills it’s previous chambers with gas, enabling it to float along the ocean floor; it literally uses its past to support it’s present.
Ammonites were once living beings, and are connected to Akasha, the fifth element. Their shells are recognized as the gemstone, Ammolite. They are evidence that in nature nothing is wasted; showing manifestations of energy may be transmutable, but energy itself cannot be destroyed.
The energies in which they held were abundant in strength, perseverance, and longevity. These attributes of Earth’s first biological creatures can still be felt today when meditating with a mind willing to understand and accept the past. Only when we learn from our ancestral past can we grow and change.
Ammonites were one of the longest living creatures this world has ever seen. They roamed our seas freely for nearly 350 million years. This was a testament to their will to not only live but become intelligent enough to outwit millions of years of evolutionary creatures. The natural predatory instinct of all creatures on Earth when we are being prayed upon causes us to activate our intuition and listen to our voice of reason. Ammonites’ deep earthen energy provides us with guidance and leadership to further distance ourselves from harmful situations.
I bought a pair of gorgeous hammered silver earrings from Nina last summer and I absolutely adore them. They are so beautiful and versatile and quickly became a favorite pair in my collection. Every time I wear them I get compliments. Absolutely in love and I am so glad I made the investment! Thanks, Nina! -Sarah.
NinaB jewelry is beautifully handmade jewelry by a local Boulder, CO, artist. I bought an exquisite Sterling silver bracelet that I wear almost all the time. It can be dressed up or down, and looks great for work or a casual a outing with friends. The bracelet is classy with artistic detail on the edges. It is definitely my “go to” piece of jewelry! -Caroline.
