Sterling Silver Pyritized Ammonite Pendant~JSSPYRA1. This pendant is an ammonite that has been naturally replaced with pyrite and yellow calcite.  Ammonites are perhaps the most widely known fossil, possessing the typically ribbed spiral-form shell. These creatures 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 belong to a group of predators known as cephalopods, which includes their living relatives the octopus, squid, cuttlefish and nautilus. Pyrite is a stone of the solar plexus chakra, the seat of physical stamina, manifestation, personal power, action, protection, and creation on all levels. It has also been used as a purifier, and to remind one of the inherent purity of the universe. 44mm x 18mm x 5mm
