Trilobite Slide Necklace
The very first piece of fabricated sterling jewelry I ever made way back in 1990 was a trilobite pendant. I still wear it often. Fossils hold a special place in my heart, and trilobites are one of my favorites.
This is a 525 million year old Elrathia kingi trilobite from Utah. These creatures were abundant during the Middle Cambrian Period when no life existed on land, only in water. What is now North America was a warm tropical climate on a super paleo-continent named Laurentia, which also included Greenland. This pendant is the ultimate antique!
