This appealing lamp has 40 Ammonites from Madagascar placed perfectly on all sides. Each sliced Ammonite has been positioned as if "floating" in a sea of green-blue art glass. These ancient sea creatures now have varying shades of calming earthy browns and light honeycomb gold. Each Ammonite is a different size, and Calcite has permeated these creatures during fossilization filling their hollow cavities with tiny crystals. These extinct nautiloids have been sliced thin to allow light through, exposing their individual chambers and growth patterns. This lamp shade offers a comforting glow while being affixed to a polished wooden base. The entire lamp is in excellent condition and would look great in any home or office that needs a contemporary twist on an ancient theme.
