Ammolite is an organic gemstone mainly found in the Rocky Mountains of North America. It was formed from the fossilized shells of ammonites and baculites (prehistoric shelled marine animals called cephalopods). Ammonites, in turn, are named for their ram’s horn appearance, after the Egyptian god Ammon, who was often depicted as having ram’s horns. Biological gemstones are few and include pearl, petrified wood, and amber. Other names include Gem Ammonite, Calcentine, and Korite. Ammolite typically has a hardness of 3.5-4.5. This gemstone is traditionally kept in its matrix, which is typically made up of shale, chalky clay or limestone. The extremely thin ammonite shell layers themselves, which create the unique iridescent colors in the ammolite can often crack within the matrix, due to environmental forces like pressure and temperature. This phenomenon is called “frost shattering.” It forms a permanent tessellated appearance, often described as “dragon skin.”
