Discover one of the rarest gems on earth.

Korite Ammolite is an exclusive gemstone, extremely rare and extraordinarily precious. Speckled in an array of vivid hues, our genuine Ammolite gemstone jewellery is a work of art meant to be worn.

How is KORITE Ammolite graded?

Like all gemstones, ammolite is graded for quality. Based on the multiplicity and vibrancy of the colour in the stone, ammolite can be graded as ‘standard’ (one or more brilliant colour), ‘A’ (two or more colour with good brilliance), ‘AA’ (at least 3 brilliant colours), and ‘AAA’ (3 to 5 brilliant colours with no matrix lines visible). The rarity of ‘AA’ and ‘AAA’ ammolite stones is akin to that of a flawless diamond.

What is the hardness of the stone? Is it wearable?

Every piece of Korite Ammolite comes with an unconditional lifetime warranty. We protect every piece of KORITE Ammolite with a clear quartz crystal cover on the gem with a hardness of 7. Protected like this, every piece of KORITE Ammolite is wearable every day.

Why does my Ammolite stone look cracked?

The lines through the Ammolite gem are natural lines. They are called ‘matrix’ lines and occur during the geologic process while the gemstone is being formed. This ‘stained glass’ pattern is very sought-after by Ammolite collectors.

Is there a charge for sizing?

There is a nominal fee of $30 for sizing a ring plus the cost of shipping it back to you. We don’t recommend having anyone else size your KORITE Ammolite jewellery.

Do you sell loose stones or rough ammolite?

We do not sell loose stones or rough stones. Ammolite is unique in the world of gemstones and requires specific techniques when cutting and polishing. KORITE pioneered and perfected these techniques.

How do I care for my ammolite jewellery?

Like all gemstones, Ammolite should be treated with care and attention.

  • Avoid exposure to direct heat.
  • Do not over-expose to water.
  • Avoid hard impact to the stone
  • Do not clean in ultrasonic cleaners

Use a soft, none-abrasive cloth to clean your Ammolite jewellery.
