Ammolite Pendant | 925 Sterling Silver
This is a splendid example of a very unusual 'gemstone ' with a powerful golden orange and green flash that changes according to the angle of view.
This material always reminds me of Dragon Scales or at least what I imagine they would look like !
Simple Bezel setting with open back designed just to show off the stone.
Technically this is a Fossilised Ammonite Shell. Those are fairly common, and often found with some iridescence on the surface.
Ammolites are essentially the same thing but the layer of opal~like Nacre is thicker and the play of colours rivals the best Opal.
These Ammolites are mined almost exclusively in the province of Alberta in Canada.
Ammolite then is an opal~like Organic Gemstone. Although still known by many as Opalised Ammonite purely because of it's appearance, in fact the crystalline Aragonite that yields the colours is closer to the Nacre that surrounds a Pearl.
Face ( Stone + Bezel ) 12 x 26 mm approx.
