History | Science

Ammonoids are a group of extinct marine molluscs in the class Cephalopoda, a class which they share with animals today such as their cousin, the Nautilus, as well as Squid and Cuttlefish. Ammonites appeared during the Devonia Period and vanished during the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event. This ammonite, found in Majanga, Madagascar, comes from the Cretaceous Period.

Ammonites can be distinguished by their septa, the dividing walls that separate the chambers within their shell. During fossilization, those chambers were filled with silica-rich water, and with time and pressure, the silica, along with the trace minerals trapped within, agatized leaving behind the beautiful orange crystalline structure we see in these ammonite pairs.



Although we always strive to provide clear, accurate images of our crystals and other products, we photograph under professional lighting, which is meant to mimic sunlight. If you get your crystal and think it looks a little different under low or artificial light, try checking it out again in sunlight!

Our crystals are one-of-a-kind art, created by nature.

No two pieces are the same, and there is no such thing as "perfection" in nature.

When it comes to our hand-carved items, remember that artists work with and around imperfections, druzy pockets, and other natural variations to bring each carving out of a piece of natural stone.

We consider these imperfections to be one of the most wonderful parts of crystal collecting, and we invite you to embrace each carving's uniqueness!

We will always try to portray each piece honestly, so be sure to look closely at our images and videos to ensure you know what to expect.
