Ammolite gem quality

Ammolite is a rare and iridescent gemstone found primarily in Alberta, Canada, particularly in the Rocky Mountains region. It is formed from the fossilized shells of ammonites, which were ancient marine mollusks that lived millions of years ago during the Late Cretaceous period. The shells underwent a process called fossilization, during which minerals such as aragonite and calcite replaced the organic material, resulting in the formation of vibrant and colorful gemstones.

What sets ammolite apart is its remarkable play of color, displaying a mesmerizing spectrum of hues ranging from fiery reds and oranges to brilliant greens and blues. This iridescence is a result of the diffraction of light as it passes through the fine layers of aragonite within the fossilized shell.

Due to its rarity and stunning visual appeal, ammolite has become highly sought after in the world of gemstones and jewelry. It is often used as a focal point in unique and artistic jewelry pieces, such as pendants, earrings, and rings.

Moreover, ammolite holds cultural significance for the indigenous people of Alberta, particularly the Blackfoot and Kainai nations, who consider it a sacred stone. They believe it embodies the energy of the Earth and carries spiritual significance, using it in ceremonies and traditional practices.

As a result of its rarity and cultural significance, ammolite has become a valuable commodity, attracting collectors, jewelry enthusiasts, and tourists to the Alberta region, where it is mined and processed with care to preserve its natural beauty and allure.
