I’ve just returned from a holiday in British Columbia and Alberta, fantastic holiday. We hired a RV and set of exploring this beautiful country. Unfortunately we didn’t come across any bears but I did come across this wonderful stone in Banff Alberta, at first I thought it was some type of opal. I asked the sales assistant if they were opals and she said no they were Ammolite, I’d never heard of this stone before so I looked it up online.
I found out that this stone was from a fossilized shell of an Ammonites which lived in the sea 70 million years ago. In 1981, ammolite was given official gemstone status by the world jewellery confederation.
I love the way the stones change colour from different angles.
I will put a link below if you are interested in knowing more about this wonderful gemstone.
Many thanks for looking
