This exceptional Necklace showcases a Pyritized Ammonite and Sterling Silver Pendant by Nevada Silversmith Jim Daggett. Pyritized Ammonite is a 165-million year-old fossil stone from Ulyanovsk, Russia.  Ammonites are extinct, but have been naturally preserved by Iron Pyrite, which has partially filled the shells with crystals. When cut and polished, the fossil shines like metal. Our Pyritized Ammonite stone depicts radiating waves of polished Pyrite, with the inner groves filled with sparkling Pyrite granules. Pyrite displays both pewter and gold tones, which can shift in varying light. The overall effect is visually striking. The Ammonite is encircled by raised Sterling Silver Bezel that is wrapped in Twisted Sterling Silver Wire. These elements sit on Sterling Silver Plate that has been cut to mirror the oval shape of the Stone. The Pendant drapes from a custom V-shaped Sterling Silver Bail. It is stamped on the back with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling".

We've paired the Pendant with 3 strands of 6mm Smoky Quartz Rounds. The Rounds are light brown and are translucent, sparkling in reflected light. They are complemented by 8mm Pyrite Faceted Rounds and 4mm Pyrite Nuggets, which harmonize with the Pendant Stone. The Pyrite Rounds are flanked by Greige Fire Polished Glass Bicones, adding additional sparkle. The Smoky Quartz is highlighted by six 9-by-12mm Sterling Silver Urn Beads. They are gracefully shaped and shine attractively against the rich hues of the Smoky Quartz. The Necklace is finished with Pyrite Nuggets, Sterling Silver Rounds and Hammered Sterling Silver Toggle Clasp, and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 132 grams and is 20-1/4 inches long plus the Pendant, which is 3-1/4 inches by 1-1/2 inches including the 1/2-inch Bail (when wearing, a vertical length of about 10 inches).
