For a person who wants a collection of gemstone, it could be one of those stones he/she is looking for. When hit by sun light, a beautiful spectrum will reflect revealing the inner core of the gem itself. Ammolite is a rare, gem-quality, iridescent material.It's cut from the fossilized shells of extinct ammonites (ancient sea creatures) found only in the Bearpaw Formation in Alberta, Canada. With a wide range of dazzling colors and patterns, this organic gemstone is highly desired for freeform natural cabochons and assembled jewelry pieces. Although the terms ammolite and ammonite are sometimes used interchangeably, ammonite, strictly speaking, refers to the fossil shells of ammonites, whether they are gem-quality or not. Ammonites were marine mollusks that became extinct around 65 million years ago. There were many species of ammonites. Their fossils have been found across the globe. The ones that yield gem-quality ammolite are Placenticeras meeki, Placenticeras intercalare, and Baculites compressus. This material has only been found in Alberta, Canada. Other gem-quality ammonite exists, such as lumachelle, which is cut from the fossils of Carnites floridus found in Austria. Although this iridescent material resembles ammolite, its a different mineral.
