‘Ammolite’ is the name given to the colourful and wonderful ammonite fossils found in Southern Alberta. Their shells underwent a unique fossilization process from exposure to pressure, temperature and geographic location which caused the animal's shell to recrystallize into amazing iridescent colours.
Since 1981 it is recognized as a gemstone by the CIBJO Colored Stones Commission.
These unique treasures can only be found in one location worldwide - in the famous Bear Paw Formation in the southwest of Alberta, Canada.
