Pyritized Ammonite Pendant

By Abraham Peina

This offering is sold.
Abraham Peina has transformed this prehistoric treasure into a wearable piece of art. Sometimes pyrite, under unique geochemical conditions, covers or replaces prehistoric creatures, like this ammonite, transforming them into incredible fossils with a gold-like lustre, their internal chambers filled with pyrite crystals. Abraham set this treasure in sterling silver, attaching a handsome sterling silver abstract charm, all suspended from a generous double ring bale. About 4 3/4" long and 1" wide, signed by the artist. Sterling silver collar sold separately here.
