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.
