71 million year old ammolite is the rarest Canadian gemstone. Discovered in 1906 by the Geological Survey of Canada, it has since been mined to make mesmerizing, colorful cabochons and pieces of wearable art. Ammolite only comes from one location - Alberta, Canada - and is one of a handful of biogenic (coming from life forms) gemstones. Ammolite is created when the mineral aragonite forms in thin, iridescent layers over the shells of extinct ammonites - a species of Orthoceras which can date back hundreds of millions of years. This hybrid gem-fossil is one of the most sought after materials for jewelry with stunning iridescence and incredibly broad range of color. This luminescent cabochon is an excellent acquisition for anyone who appreciates fossils and gemstones and who may want to design a one of a kind piece of jewelry for their collection.
