Wow 🎓 An Ammolite is an aragonite mineral, which is a form of fossilised Ammonite. Ammonites were squid-like creatures that swam around the earth and went extinct at the end of the Cretaceous period. The outer shells of these ammonites were buried deep under volcanic ash and other minerals. Completely devoid of oxygen and water, they were fossilised. The fossilization formed upon it a layer of aragonite, which formed ammolite. It is the opal-like gemstone formed because of fossilisation.
Ammolite is one of the few natural gems to be introduced in the last 70 years. It got its official gemstone status in 1981 from the World Jewelry Confederation (CIBJO). Ammolite mining for commercial purposes began in the same year. Ammolite was named the official gemstone of Lethbridge, Alberta in 2007. It is also considered the National Stone of Canada.
Ammolite is formed from the fossilisation of Ammonite. The name Ammonite is derived from the ancient God Ammon, who believed these creatures to be divine. Ammon is depicted with a head of a ram with spiral horns, which are comparable with the spiral shell of an ammonite. Pliny the Elder, the Roman historian, considered ammonite to be holy because he believed the stones summoned prophetic dreams.
Ammolite also means rebirth. This stone has the power to absorb universal energies and impart them to the wearer. Ammolite is also known as a talisman for love, family, and relationships.
The legend of ammolite goes back to the Blackfoot tribe of North America. It was discovered that Indigenous people used the stone to ward off evil.
Feng Shui masters believe ammolite absorbs cosmic energy from the universe and conveys it to the wearer as health, wisdom, and good fortune. A high-graded ammolite stone intensifies and strengthens the well-being of the homeowner and their visitors as well. The different layers of ammolite are said to enhance the Chi or life energy to alter negative energy into positive. The spiral shell of ammonite also represents the ‘golden spiral’ or the Fibonacci sequence.
How Rare is Ammolite?
Even though the ammonites swam around the world, the only gemstone-quality ammolites are found near the St. Mary river, in the Southern part of Alberta, Canada. This rock formation is known as Bearpaw formation. Since these gemstones come from fossilized ammonites, which are extinct creatures, they are one of the rarest gemstones. Estimates show that only six to eight years of mining are left.
