This is the much coveted "dragonskin" variety of ammolite --actually looks more like cathedral stained glass.
This gem has at least four colours and is so bright that it has been difficult to photograph .Any white seen in images is cameral flashback--this beauty is ALL colour.
At 36x20mm this is a large gem of interest to the collector or that person that wants to work with their jeweller to create a one of a kind high value pendant masterpiece.
This gorgeous ammolite was hand collected by a member of the Blood reserve in South Alberta,Canada and sold on to one of Alberta's master cutter/finishers who produced the finished cabochon with a glass like surface with absolutely no epoxy on it.The edges have been carefully prepared to be set.
I have the good fortune to live where top grade ammolite is mined and am able to select the very best stones right off the cutters tables before they fill orders to the general public.This is why the quality of gems offered in this shop is consistently the best available anywhere.
In this shop you always get the exact item you ordered—no substitutions as done on TV sales shops etc.
A note about my listing images.
All my images are taken under professional OTT daylight corrected bulbs in order to accurately show un retouched colours.Viewing these ammolites under different light sources will result in different colours--all still beautiful--but different.
I have received many positive remarks about the accuracy of my images and products like these from a repeat buyers:
I received the ring today and it is beautiful. Your picture/description is right on. It is a gorgeous ammonite stone and the setting is perfect. Thank you very much.--BT--Antioch Tennessee.
I received both of my items and they are absolutely beautiful! I will definitely order from you again in the future and recommend you to my family & friends.
Thank you again for your help and patience!
GRADING—Just so you know.
The ammolite industry has yet to fix on a uniform grading system however the following is accepted until it is.
Grade AA….Three or more colours.Bright.
Grade A+….Two colours—Bright.
Grade A …..One colour— Bright.
Grade A- …. Dull.Very dark
The top three grades is all we use… it makes lovely high quality jewelry,the last grade does not.We don’t use it.
A very large amount of ammolite of the low A- grade is being bought up by Asian interests,set in cheap plated settings and sold as fine ammolite jewelry.Caveat Emptor.
The popularity of ammolite has grown over the last few years, since renowned Feng Shui master Edward Kui Ming Li began extolling its virtues to his followers.He calls it the “Millennium Stone” and the most important and powerful of stones. Said to promote the flow of “chi” throughout the body, enhance well-being, and reduce toxins in those that own it or wear it.
Ammolite can exhibit up to seven colours—each bring a certain benefit, such as wealth, wisdom, health, growth, or energy. Feng shui practitioners call it the “seven-colour” prosperity stone.”
Buy it for its beauty----- but you just may enjoy additional benefits too!
