Colours in our Ammolite Stones 

Each ammolite stone is as unique as a fingerprint, displaying a wide range of colours that vary in intensity and hue. Standard grade stones typically display 1-2 colours, while A grade stones feature 2 or more colours in brighter tones. AA grade stones boast 3 or more bright colours, and AAA grade stones display 3 or more vibrant colours from any angle. These colours can include a stunning array of hues, from fiery reds and oranges to deep greens and blues.  

The occurrence of different colours in ammolite can vary depending on the specific deposit, but as a general rule, at lower grades, greens tend to dominate, along with possible reds and oranges. As the grade increases, you will begin to see a wider range of colours, including blues, violets, and other rare and vibrant hues. This is because higher-grade ammolite stones tend to exhibit more vibrant and saturated colours overall, with a greater range of hues and tones. At KORITE International, we offer a wide selection of ammolite stones across all grades, ensuring that our customers can find the perfect stone to fit their unique style and preferences.
