Description

Beautiful 'opalized' ammonite. Deep red, golden yellow and green color flashes all over when moved in the light. Ammolite is a pseudomorph of aragonite after biogenic aragonite (the ammonite shell) and can include quartz and calcite plus many elements like iron, magnesian, copper, chrome, aluminium, strontium, titan and more in micro traces. There is no water in ammolite (like in real opal), the color and iridescence caused by interference in the micro layers of the material. Almost all parts of the shell seem to radiate with color, much more and better than the camera can show.

This material is getting scarce.
