Ammonite: a wonder of color in nature
Source and identification
Ammolite, which comes from deep underground, is a gemstone formed from ammonite fossils over millions of years. This unique treasure was discovered due to crustal changes in the Rocky Mountains pushing layers to the surface. Ammonite was officially recognized as a gemstone by the International Jewelry Confederation (CIBJO) in 1981, and was described as an "organic gemstone" by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). It is also Canada's national gemstone, giving it an extraordinary status in the crystal industry. .
The colors of ammolite are amazing, ranging from red, orange, yellow, green, cyan, blue to purple, covering all seven colors of the rainbow. This all-round color range allows it to correspond to the seven lotus chakras on the body, providing great guidance and is considered an all-powerful crystal.
Each color of ammonite has its own special meaning. For example, red ammolite symbolizes vitality and enthusiasm, orange affects people's creativity and immunity, yellow is considered a stone of wealth, green corresponds to wisdom and entrepreneurial spirit, blue represents communication skills and has powerful healing energy, and purple Symbolizes nobility and status.
Maintenance and protection

Ammonite jewelry on the market is usually protected by a layer of glue or crystal surface to maintain its original appearance and color. This kind of treasure that requires great care is a rare choice for collectors and crystal enthusiasts alike.
Energy and healing
Deeply nourished by the earth, ammolite absorbs the essence and energy of the earth and is considered an ancient substance with curative and harmonizing effects. Combining various energies, brilliant colors and outstanding status, ammolite has undoubtedly become a must-have for jewelry lovers.
