Ammolite Jewelry

24 Aug

Gemstone Jewelry

The colors present in Ammolite are caused by light interference during refraction into the many layers of the gemstone. Each color in Ammolite represents a different layer of the gem material. So, depending on the number of fine layers in the rough, everything from one color to the full visible spectrum will be displayed. Since the play of light varies, every Ammolite gem shows a unique array of color. Ammolite comes in a wide variety of colors including red, blue, green, yellow, gold, pink, and many others.

Ammolite is a gemstone created from the shell of a fossilized sea creature that existed over 65 million years ago called an ammonite. Although sources of ammonite exist in other locations around the globe, it is only in one isolated region of Southern Alberta, Canada, that this deposit produces the gemstone Ammolite. Seventy-one million years of tectonic pressure, heat, and mineralization have resulted in the formation of this geological wonder. The supply of Ammolite is extremely limited, and with only one area for mining, Ammolite truly is one of nature's rarest gems.
