The ammolite found on this stone was found in Central Utah. We surface collected for this rare gemstone in our spare time over several years. Ammolite alone is a rare gemstone, but this is even rarer given it was found in Utah (most ammolite comes from Canada). Utah ammolite is differentiated from the Canadian variety in that Utah ammolite is found in a limestone whereas the the Canadian host rock is baculite. This makes Utah ammolite all the more unique and very collectible. The Utah deposit is very small and quantities are very limited.

Ammolite comes from the shell of a fossil squid-like sea creature that lived during the Cretaceous Period between 70 and 120 million years ago. The Cretacesous includes the time of the dinosaurs. Ammolite is often compared to fire opal for its often brilliant fire in its colorful shell that may change color when turned in the light.

This piece was designed primarily with men in mind relative to design and color. The ammolite on this piece comprises about 20% of the surface of the original host rock. The host rock is a mahogany color stone.

Approximate stone measurements:
Length: 3.2 cm.
Width at widest point: 2.0 cm.

The ammolite stone is covered with an epoxy based resin as a protection for the stone. Ammolite is a relatively soft stone, comparative to fire opal, where both are best protected by a cab or resin.

The ammolite in this stone displays bright reds and gold colors with a nice chromatic color shift with some green as the stone is turned at various angles. This piece is unique in that the angle of the ammolite in the stone comes alive in a very bright fashion when turned, while the fire is more subtle at other angles. It seems to suddenly flash a brilliant red and gold color when seen at the best angles. At other angles the colors are more subtle with some good green fire. The piece comes with an attached adjustable 26” black synthetic leather cord for the necklace. Photos are taken to best display the fire in the ammolite stone.

Ammolite is a form of art that nature took millions of years to create. It is both a natural wonder and beautiful wear-able specimen. I am pleased to have played a part in enhancing it in a way that can be enjoyed by others.

Quality assurance is very important at USAmmolite. If you are not happy with your piece, it may be returned, shipping pre-paid, for a full refund of the purchase price within 30 days of purchase.

I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I enjoyed making it.
