COMMENTS: Exceptional organic fossil gem.

Here is one phenomenal natural ammonite with a phenomenal colorful iridescence, displaying yellows, blues, oranges, and red flashes that was mined from Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada. Excellent face up appearance and a very gemmy eye appeal. Would make a very nice stone for a jewelry piece.

Ammolite is one of the most wonderful gems, full of flash and fire and just about any color you can think of. It is the fossilized shell of the extinct sea creature ammonite (a type of cephalopod mollusk - and no, it is not the same as a snail) found in the Bearpaw Shale Formation of Canada and the US.

The difference between the ammonite fossils found in most of the world and the ammonite fossils found in the Bearpaw Shale Formation is that in the Bearpaw Shale formation the actual shell (ie mother-of-pearl or nacre) has been preserved as part of the fossil. In the rest of the world, the sediment filled in the shell, the fossil formed, and the shell has disintegrated. Somehow, in Alberta, the shell has been preserved as part of the fossil. It is that preserved shell that is the gem ammolite.
