Ammolite (Gem Ammonite Shell)

Fossilized fire! This absolutely magical piece of shell comes from an Ammonite fossil that is approximately 70 million years old. This piece has the most incredible fire colors, red, orange, yellow (and even some green). The gem quality of the iridescent ammonite shell has earned its own classification as Ammolite. This incredible natural occurrence is a a result of mineralization during the fossilization process. Found in Alberta, Canada, this exceptional quality specimen sometimes referred to as "Dragonskin" has been lightly polished and displays beautifully as is. The back is flat with smooth sides that could also be used in jewelry making. 

Approx. 2.25"H x .1"W x 1"L
