Announcement   The rarest gemstone, from ammonite fossils that died out with the dinosaurs, ammolite is sure to delight and inspire you. Come treat yourself to the view.
.........

***Ammolite is a rare and valuable opal-like organic gemstone found primarily along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains of the United States and Canada. It is arguably the rarest gemstone on earth. It is made of the fossilized shells of ammonites, which in turn are composed primarily of aragonite, the same mineral that makes up nacreous pearls. An iridescent opal-like play of color is shown in fine specimens, mostly in shades of green and red; all the spectral colors are possible, however. Reds and greens are the most commonly seen colors, owing to the greater fragility of the finer layers responsible for the blues.

The ammolite itself is actually a very thin sheet, 0.5-0.8mm in thickness. The rest of the gemstone is made up from the fossilized ammonite on which this structure was preserved.

I am inspired by self-discovery, by discovery of the beautiful and sometimes ugly world I live in; and finally, by the beautiful and sometimes ugly people that populate it. We all have this capacity for grace and brutality. I hope to cultivate the grace within myself while leaving the brutality behind. I hope to inspire others, to lift them up. I hope that this will be my legacy.

I find that when I receive a new stone, I have to let it sit a while as I just think about the stone. Eventually, when I feel ready to approach it, I generally just begin wrapping, letting the stone guide me as I go. Rather than planning the pendant out, this process allows me to tap into a relaxed creativity that I find to be very therapeutic. The drawback is that I am not completely satisfied with every pendant I create. Overall, however, I think this is the most positive approach for me, personally, and I think that it allows some of the more beautiful pendants to come into being.
