Ammolite is the fossil shell of the Upper Cretaceous Ammonite, a squid-like marine animal. Ammonites lived about 70 to 75 million years ago, and were a favoured delicacy of the Mosasaur, a marine reptile. It would sink its teeth into the ammonite, the body would be devoured and the shell discarded and then fall to the sea bottom. Over millions of years the sediment would preserve the shell and this mineral-rich environment created iridescent greens, reds, yellows, rare blues and violets...

This blackjack dates from the early to mid 1900's and is a small, easily-concealed weapon consisting of a leather-wrapped lead weight attached to the end of a leather-wrapped coil spring. The strap on the end opposite the weight wraps around the wrist.

It works by storing kinetic energy in the dense core when swung, this stored energy then spreads the impact over a larger surface area; the leather covering lessens the chance of lacerating the skin and the chance of breaking bones...

This as a rare, British made boarding cutlass/lance c-1750. It has a rich warm brown patina and you can see the maker's name (W. Gilpin) stamped on the back. The grip is hollow so you can insert a long pole into it and then pin it into place through the hole in the handle. With this method it was used as a lance, ship to ship. When the pirate was finally able to board the other vessel, he just pulled the pin from the handle, dropped the pole and viola!.... he had a cutlass.
