Ammonia tepida

Marine Biology / Micropaleontology

These spiral-shaped earrings are modeled after the benthic foraminiferan ‘Ammonia tepida.’ This genus of Foraminifera is named after its structural resemblance to ammonites, an extinct group of marine mollusks that also have a distinctive spiral shell.
