Ammolite is primarily composed of aragonite. It forms on fossils of compressed and crushed Ammonites, modern relatives being cuttlefish, squid, octopus and chambered Nautilus (considered living fossils). Some Ammonites are found with bite marks, believed to be from the Mosasaur. Ammonite is named for the shape, like the horns of the ancient Libyan deity, Ammon. Ammolite can be unstable and flake in layers; stabilized by coating with epoxy, and pressurizing to penetrate the layers. It has a hardness of 4 on Mohs scale, and the bright iridescent colors make it easy to identify from other gems, such grade is exclusively found in Southern Alberta, largely processed by Korite International, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Named after the Kormos family farm, where large deposits of Ammolite have been found. The gem has had many names, officially becoming Ammolite in 1981.
At first glance this pendant appears to be an array of red and orange, but upon any movement you can see jewel-toned blues, greens, yellows, and a vibrant amber color. The smooth pool of depth within this pendant is truly eye-catching and in the light this elegantly designed pendant captures the spotlight perfectly!
According to Blackfoot folklore this rare Buffalo Stone brings luck to the hunt. It was used by braves for vision quests during their coming of age rituals. They believed keeping it in their home to bring health and prosperity. Some Elders believe Ammolite to invoke prophetic dreams. It carries a high vibration, believed to activate etheric and physical DNA, elevating consciousness, awareness, and connection with past lives. It is believed to have absorbed universal knowledge, therefore granting wisdom and wealth. The spiral shell raises energy flow; converting negative to positive energy, stimulating Chi, and mitigating depression and fatigue. The vast color spectrum connects with the 7 main chakras, representing balance of the elements. They are helpful for building stamina and releasing trauma. Ammolite represents good luck and is said to attract what we need, as opposed to what we want.
