Giant Sea Fossil Necklace - A

Giant Sea Fossil Necklace - A

$225.00

 

This amazing piece is a huge fossilized ammonite with little bits of Pyrite druzy in the center and top tip. Its really hard to see in the photos, but there is pyrite also in the dark lines of the ammonite! The pyrite filled in where the bones of the Ammonite used to be. This is considered a high grade sea fossil, around 160 million years old, and comes from the bank of the Volga River in Russia. Truly more beautiful in person, the smooth pyrite in the ammonite catches the light. 

The pendant is about 3.75 inches long, the chain is about 19 inches long.

if you would like a different chain length please leave a note at checkout or email me immediately after purchase at realm.and.reason@gmail.com. Please consider measurements carefully.

How Its Made: Each stone is handpicked to meet my standards of excellent quality. Ring bands and many other connective parts are hand formed and are then sculpted onto the stone with a permanent epoxy. In the areas where I would like metal to be, I paint each piece with an electrically conductive paint. The next step is to put a removable, protective covering on all stones. The necklace will then go through a process where it is submerged into an acid bath and the areas with the conductive paint will begin to grow a super strong layer of 100% pure copper. This growth process takes 12 - 36 hours for each piece and is monitored during the process. After this is done, each piece is one by one hand polished, cleaned, oxidized, polished again, and then given a clear protective coating. After they are all dry and finished, they are ready to be added to high quality, beautiful chains :)
