Handcrafted drop style earrings featuring colorful Ammolite set in Fine Sterling Silver.
Ammolite - A rare, valuable opal-like organic gemstone. Ammolite is made of fossilized Ammonite shells and was given official gemstone status in 1981. Ammolite is mostly found in the Rocky Mountains and is the official gemstone of Alberta, Canada. It is a grey to brown hue with a primarily red and green iridescence, sometimes also showing blue and purple, though these fine layers are fragile and often broken off. Ammolite’s colors come from its Aragonite content. Being only .5 - .8 mm in thickness, Ammolite is often cracked giving it an appearance that is often described as Stained Glass.
