A double-sided reversible pendant featuring an Ammonite fossil on one side and a Whitby Jet stone on the other side. These lovely peardrop shape stones are 25mm by 20mm and set in hallmarked sterling silver. Made in our Sheffield studio by jewellery designer Andrew Thomson.
As all stones are created naturally, each one is unique and may therefore vary from the image. However we guarantee they are of the highest quality and handpicked specifically for each design.
Now a little bit about the stones…
Ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years ago and they barely survived several major extinction events. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous Period.
Jet Stone is an organic rock that is created when pieces of woody material are buried, compacted, and then goes through organic degradation. It is then heated, and what results is a coal seam. It’s usually black in colour, but there are also brown-coloured Jet Stones. It can be easily cut or carved, and it has a uniform texture that makes it possible to carve with accuracy. When rubbed and polished to a bright shine, it can have a very nice finish and its aesthetic value is greatly enhanced. You will be captivated by this stone’s beautiful silky glow!
