• The name "ammonite", was inspired by the spiral shape of the fossilized shells, which were thought to resemble coiled rams' horns. Pliny the Elder (d. 79 AD, near Pompeii) referred to the fossils of these animals as ammonis cornua (or "horns of Ammon") since the Egyptian god Ammon (Amun) was typically depicted wearing ram's horns. The now extinct group of Ammonoids were marine mollusc animals that were more closely related to living coleoids (i.e., octopuses, squid, and cuttlefish) than they were to shelled nautiloids.
• A durable clear coating is added to protect the natural beauty of the copper and silver patina.
• 100% solid sterling silver ear hooks.
