At KORITE our passion is the stunning, rare and truly one of a kind ammolite gemstone. Ammolite is a semi-precious gemstone that was born from a fossilized crustacean from the Crustaceous and Jurassic eras; dating back over 71 million years ago. The name “Ammolite” is the most common name for the gemstone today and this name was derived from the ancient Egyptian God, Ammon. Characterized by ahead of the ram with twisted horns, the Egyptian god Ammon had comparable traits to the twisted shape of the crustaceous shell, Ammonite.
Ammonite comes in a variety of sizes and colours, and are found all over the world. However, Ammolite is a unique form of Ammonite only found in Alberta, Canada. Ammolite has been naturally created over the past 71 Million years. It is formed from an ammonite fossil preserved through a combination of immense tectonic pressure, mineralization from the soil, heat and of course time. The result is a natural gemstone layer that shows a full kaleidoscope of colours from vibrant blues & greens to fiery reds & golds. The reason that Ammolite is so remarkable is because of the rainbow of colours it displays. These remarkable colours are caused by a phenomenon called iridescence. Iridescence offers the human eye a play on colours, shifting through various chromatic states as you view it.
