A neat piece of ammolite wrapped by hand in .925 sterling silver. Ammolite is a gemstone made from the fossilized shells of Ammonites. Ammolites are now-extinct cephalopods that lived millions of years ago in the seas. Occasionally, when their shells were fossilized they were crushed by the earth's pressure for millions of years and the sells were impregnated with minerals that caused a transformation to a near opal-like quality. They are a fossil gemstone and this accounts for the different appearances they can have (this one has a neat crackle or dragonskin pattern). The colors shift and change like an opal. It's very neat.
I hand-wrap these stones with solid sterling silver wire with no soldering or casting, so they are not perfect, but are one of a kind. If you have questions I've explained a bit better here: [link]
