Item details

Handmade

Rare Alberta ammolite gemstone set in a solid sterling silver bezel setting. Includes a black leather cord with a silver clasp. Small accent is a Russian ammonite, naturally covered in pyrite. Each pendant also arrives in it's own fabric jewelry 'petal' pouch, handmade by a local artisan. I love these remarkable gems, and it is important to me that their new owners love their piece as well. I strive to offer the value that I would be looking for as a customer when purchasing ammolite. My doublets are not coated, simply buffed and polished. Color will not cloud or diminish over time.

* Shipping cost does not increase with each additional item added after the initial item.

*DISCLAIMER: please view the 5th & 6th image, which shows a surface scratch on the shell which occurred when setting the ammonite in the center. There are also a few chips on the back of the matrix, visible in the last image.

measurements (stone): 1 - 1/2 x 2 - 1/2 x 1 - 1/2 inches, small ammonite accent measures 5/8 an inch long.

Composites vs. free form..
Composites are taking three or more high quality ammolite chips and placing them together to create a tri colored 'aa' shell, which then is then attached to a matrix and capped with quartz. Like a mosaic as opposed to a naturally formed pattern. (not unlike a mosaic opal composite) These pieces are priced high and are as rare as obtaining three bright colors of ammolite chips and a good jeweler to carefully piece them together. This is why a free form tri colored shell (which the colors are naturally occurring together) is much more rare, and what consumers are often led to believe they are purchasing. I am not yet aware of a way to test for composites. If I were out to purchase a tri colored 'aa' piece of ammolite jewelry, I would examine how the colors intermingle with one another, or do the colors look artificially independent of one another..

Triplet = matrix (backing made of ammonite) + shell + quartz cap (three components / stacked layers each not naturally formed together. like a sandwich.)
Doublet = matrix + shell (two components/stacked layers, base was not naturally formed with shell, artificially attached.)
Natural = as-is naturally 100% formed
