Rare Canadian Ammolite
The setting is 14kt Gold-Filled Wire This Ammolite piece reminds me of Aurora Borealis...the rolling flash of color is amazing! Great in the picture but really super in your hand.
The ammonites that form ammolite inhabited a prehistoric, inland subtropical sea that bordered the Rocky Mountains—this area is known today as the Cretaceous or Western Interior Seaway. As the ammonites died, they sank to the bottom and were buried by layers of bentonitic mud that eventually became shale. Many gem-quality ammonites are found within siderite concretions. These sediments preserved the aragonite of the shells, preventing it from converting to calcite.
