Ammonites were cephalopods with a similar appearances to a nautilus. They lived in the oceans between 360- 65 million years ago. The name ‘ammonite’ originates from the greek ram-horned god called Ammon. Ammonites went extinct around the same time as the dinosaurs, and their beautiful spiral shells have been fossilized with different minerals over time.
Amethyst is the purple variety of quartz, that has been a sought after stone for many years. The ancient Greeks and Romans held strong belief that Amethyst could prevent intoxication, and therefore made jewelry and chalices with that intention.
It is recommended that you remove your jewelry prior to sleeping, bathing, exercising, or cleaning with chemicals. Each piece has been sealed with a non-toxic jewelry lacquer. You may gently clean your piece with mild soap and water but never use chemicals or other types of cleaners because this can damage the gemstones and remove the patina on the piece.
