Ammonite Shell Earrings
This product is currently sold out.
The name "ammonite" comes from the spiral shape of these fossilized shells. Pliny the Elder (d. 79 AD near Pompeii) called fossils of these animals ammonis cornua ("horns of Ammon") because the Egyptian god Ammon (Amun) was typically depicted wearing ram's horns.ERS9208
