Did you know...
The name Ammonite comes from the spiral shape of their fossilised shells resembling tightly coiled rams horns. Pliny the Elder called ammonite fossils “Ammonis Cornua” (Horns of Ammon) because the Egyptian god Ammon (Amun) was typically depicted wearing ram's horns.
In medieval England ammonites were thought to be petrified snakes and were called Snakestones or Serpentstones and were believed to provide protection from snake bites.
The ammonite spoon is 8.6cm (3.4") long and comes in a presentation gift box.
All Glover and Smith designs are handmade from solid polished lead free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead) and completely food safe. Because we use solid metal the surface of your ammonite spoon will never flake or rust, just wash with warm soapy water.
