Red Russian Ammolite

Ammonites became extinct at the end of the cretaceous period 65 million years ago. This exceptionally perfect ammonite fossil (Craspedodiscus) was discovered in the Volga River region of Russia. Its surface glows with the red luster of ammolite, the rarest and most expensive of all gemstones. This piece was produced with the original Dorée Nature process of allowing the varnishes to ripple with the patterns of the wind. 24K gold. 11″ x 14″
