Ammonites were predatory, squid like creatures that first appeared about 240 million ago and lived until they went extinct along with the dinosaurs around 65 million years ago ~ a mass extinction at the end of the Cretaceous Period. These carnivores had sharp, beaklike jaws inside a ring of tentacles that extended from their shells to capture prey. Some of them grew to over six feet in diameter... imagine scuba diving and coming face to face with one of these things!
At Light the Earth, you can find various stunning pieces as jewelry as well as specimen collection.
Have a Merry Christmas
