Brachiopod Fossil necklace pendant for the fossil collector in your life - Sterling Silver wire

$40.00
SKU:
BPD10
Quantity:

This is a natural Brachiopod fossil that has been hand wrapped using heavy gauge sterling silver wire.

The textures and surfaces of this piece are really interesting.  There are some smoother areas and a bit of a shine to this fossil.  I do not suggest that you wear it in the shower or while swimming though as it is a fossil and should be treated with care.  As you turn your Brachiopod in the light, you will really get to enjoy the visual appeal that it has and all the individual areas filled with detail.

Your Brachiopod measures 1 1/4 inches long by just under 1 inch wide and will come ready to wear on the necklace of your choice.  This would be an excellent gift for those who collect fossils as well as anyone who enjoys unique pieces of jewelry.

A Brachiopod (or Brachiopoda)  is a small invertebrate marine animal that has been around since the Cambrian Period (570 million years ago).

When you look at this fossil, you can see that both sides are almost the same.  That is what helps to identify this particular animal.  The bottom of the Brachiopod has a small groove where it was originally attached to the ocean floor by means of a fleshy "stalk" or pedicle.   The internal anatomy of brachiopod is different from a clam. Brachiopods have a coiled feeding organ called a lophophore and usually stayed in one place during its adult lifetime.
