Ammonite and Ammolite Blog
“Ammolites" are Ammonite fossils predominately found in Madagascar and Alberta (Canada) that display iridescence by compression and mineralization of the Ammonite fossil. These iridescent Ammonites are often of gem quality when polished. In no case would this iridescence have been visible during the animal's life; additional shell layers covered it.
Ammolite is actually one of the rarest gemstones in the world. This is because it is unique to a geological deposit known as the Bearpaw Formation. Just one area is known to yield gem-quality ammolite in commercial quantities, around the St. Mary River in Southern Alberta.
Ammolite is an opal-like organic gemstone made of the fossilized shells of ammonites, which in turn are composed primarily of aragonite, the same mineral contained in nacre, with a microstructure inherited from the shell.
Ammolite can come in any color in the rainbow but most are green and red. Blue, violet and pink are rare and, typically, more valuable.
The spiral shape of these fossilized creatures symbolizes continual change and evolution. The Ammonite draws off all negative energies. Think of the Ammonite spirals as a filter, drawing in these dense energies which are no longer needed, moving them through the spirals and releasing them as fresh, positive, loving life force energies.
The Ammonite is a very powerful earth healing fossil. Ammonites have absorbed cosmic energy over eons of time and help to stimulate the life force (Chi) within.
Ammonites are often used for activating Kundalini and life path energies.

Physically, Ammonites can help to increase stamina and vitality. Use Ammonites when working with issues of blood pressure or problems with the ears, lungs and degenerative disorders. Ammonites will also help to lift the heaviness that is sometimes felt during depression.
The word ammonite is derived from Ammon, an Egyptian god who took the form of a ram. Ammonites are similar in appearance to a ram's horn.
