About BuffaloStoneAmmolite

Sales 336
On Etsy since 2015

There is something about millenniums old organic gems that is an paradox to me... Until stones can speak we will be deprived of their wisdom and admire the beauty in it's stead. Amber one time being the life running within monumental ancient tree's. Pearls a modest reminder of the purity bestowed upon a fortunate grain of sand. Onto the ammonite, uncomely amidst all manner of sea creatures, God chooses to boast of the heavens.

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
