Ammolite Ammonites originate in the Bearpaw Formation, in Alberta, Canada. The Ammonites are Placenticeras meeki, and date from the Cretaceous Period, 71 million years old.
Ammolite is used in the production of jewellery, and is well known for its properties in "Feng Shui".
Large Ammolite Ammonites can fetch in excess of $100,000.
The wonderful irridescent colours are produced by huge pressure at the time of fossilisation.
This extraordinary piece of nacre has an amazing range of brilliant colours.
It would also serve as a very unusual pendant.
