Ammolite is a rare material that most commonly forms in northern Canada, but may also form in Colorado and elsewhere; it is a pearlescent material which forms on the surface of Ammonite fossils, created by prismatic aragonite crystals. Ammolite is a highly valued natural material that requires delicate care.

Note: Although it is common to see this material listed as "opalized", it is NOT opal. Ammolite is much more similar to the outer layers of a pearl: prismatic aragonite layers bonded together by organic binding proteins.

Care for gemstones in sterling silver jewelry:
As with all natural stones set in silver, these jewelry pieces should be removed when taking a shower, swimming, or entering a hot springs. Water (especially hot water) can damage natural materials and even cause settings to fail. This is especially true with gemstone rings!
*Though many gems and minerals have historical and cultural associations with healing properties, these items are sold for wear in jewelry, display, study, and collector interest only.
