|Availability:||In stock (1)|
Ammolite is one of the only fossil gemstones. It is the shell of two species of ammonite that fossilized into a thin layer of aragonite. This gemstone is only found in the southwestern portion of Alberta, Canada. As you can see they possess a stunning array of iridescent colors.
Ammonites first appeared on the earth over 400 million years ago. They are considered one of the most abundant creatures to ever live as they have currently discovered over 10,000 different species of ammonite from locations all over the Earth. They possessed multi-chambered shells which housed squid-like tentacles and could reach up to 9 feet in diameter. These interesting sea creatures survived three different extinction events, even the Permian extinction, a global warming event caused be volcanic activity and killed 96 percent of all sea life.
