Description

Druzy Quartz refers to a layer of minute quartz crystals that have crystallized on the surface of a quartz based mineral. Druzy Quartz has a sugar-like appearance. They are often found in the hollow cavity of Agate geodes.

Ammonite fossils are the remains of an extinct group of marine animals known as ammonites. These creatures were once the most abundant animals of the ancient seas and are now a popular subject of study among paleontologists. Ammonites lived during the Paleozoic and Mesozoic Eras, which equates to approximately 408 to 65 million years ago.

The fossils of ammonites are found all over the world and are prized for their mesmerizing logarithmic spiral. These spiral shells were once used for buoyancy and protection from predators. The shells of ammonites are made of aragonite, a crystalline form of calcium carbonate that is also found in pearls and some types of coral.
