AMMOLITE FOR SALE
Ammolite is an opal-like, gemstone found found primarily in Alberta, Canada. It is made of the fossilized shells of ammonites, which in turn are composed primarily of aragonite, the same mineral contained in nacre, with a microstructure inherited from the shell. In 1981, ammolite was given official gemstone status by the World Jewellery Confederation. It frequently contains red, green, orange and more rarely blue and purple iridescent colorations which shine differently depending on the light and angle.
