Ammonite

Regular price R 495.00

These 3 micro macrame necklaces feature a Ammonite, set with brown or brown & purple wax thread.  These necklaces are one of a kind, handmade with the macrame technique.  They are adjustable so can be worn short or long.  The wax thread is very strong and feels very natural, it also maintains its color and shape for a long time.

Ammonites lived during the periods of Earth history known as the Jurassic and Cretaceous. They became extinct at the end of the Cretaceous Period at roughly the same time as the dinosaurs disappeared. They are commonly found as fossils, formed when the remains or traces of the animal became buried in sediment which later solidified into rock.

Ammonites were marine animals and had a coiled external shell similar to the modern pearly nautilus.

The ammonite's shell was divided into chambers separated by strong walls known as septa. They probably lived in water up to 100 metres deep.
