They also come in varying chains from handcrafted wooden beads, cords, and varying silver chains. Come to our shop and make sure to get one of these unique products!
These beautiful dragon skin patterns shows how unique each individual pieces of Ammolite can be. The amount of scratches doesn't mean it is more or less rare, it simply indicates that they were moved from their concretion and got exposed to their harsh environment. Which could have been cause during the ice age or some kind of erosion event.
Come have a look of our new amazing finds in the store on our web store. Some of them have Ammolite gem quality on both sides of the fossil. It is truly interesting to see how pretty those natural colors can be. The iridescence effect from this gemstone is unique and no one is able to replicate it in labs so far.
We are now offering loose gemstones in our store and as well as on our web store. You will find very high end quality Ammolite gem with unique patterns and colors. If you come to the store in Canmore you can ask to attached a bail with no extra charge for the work. The price of the bail may vary depending if it is gold or silver. It is possible to attached the gemstone to something else like a Fedora, a blazer, etc but we are not provide it in store.

New sample results from the new legal commercial ammolite mine may dispute the existing theory of the "Blue Zone".
Owner Richard Morgan of the Ammonite Factory with thirty years of experience in ammolite manufacturing has stated that; "In my experience I have noticed that in various regions of Alberta the "Blue Zone" is not isolated to a specific location as previously thought."
Geologist Alison Hepburn P.Geol. confirms that it is possible that the "Blue Zone" in the Bearpaw Formation might be more aerially extensive than previously mapped in Alberta.
