Ammolite is a rare, vividly colored, iridescent gem found exclusively in southern Alberta, Canada, and is the Canadian National Stone. It is found in concretions deep in the geological Bearpaw Shale foundation and is formed from the fossils of ancient sea creatures called Ammonites. Compacted compressed fragments of Ammonite shell, crushed, and heated, were weathered through aeons of tectonic upheaval and unearthed in mosaic-like patterns as Ammolite. Over 100 million years old!
