ammonite: Per Wikipedia the ammonites went extinct with Dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Ammonites survived until the end of the Cretaceous period in a sea that covered what is now Alberta. Canada and Montana, USA. These ammonites were transformed into the rare gem known as Ammolite.

De structuur is steen en de factuur is de vorm van een slakkenhuis die in de steen is afgedrukt.

fossilized shell...

Shell Fossil. I have actually have found one of these. It had the crystallized insides of it.

these are amonite fossils. Jason's dad knows a lot about fossils. he bought Jason one.he told Jason it was amonite. Craig salt, the dad's boss, said that the fossil wasn't ammonite and the father agrees. this makes jason mad because he thinks his dad is weak for not standing up to him.

The iridescence reminds me of the color flash in labradorite, and the drops below are like smokey quartz. Beautiful.

Ammonite fossil: These creatures lived between 240 - 65 million years ago, when they became extinct along with the dinosaurs. 'ammonite' (usually lower-case) 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. Ammonites moved by jet propulsion, expelling water through a funnel-like opening to propel themselves in the opposite direction.
