This pair of earrings features 2 unique Ammolite gemstones from Alberta. As soon as the sunlight hits the gem, its colour changes from yellow into green and red.
Inspired by the raw beauty, I added some Celtic swirls to the Sterling Silver before I set the gems.
The Ammolites are both free-shaped and measure 25 x 13 mm and 22 x 12. I sanded the backside of the gems and made sure both earrings weigh exactly the same (5.5 gramm each).
This item is handmade and comes in a beautiful gift box.
Mohs scale hardness: 3.5 – 4
Ammolite is an opal-like organic gem found primarily along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta, Canada. It is made of the fossilized shells of ammonites and has only been a recognized gemstone since 1981 .
This gem is used by healers to bring out personal awakening, it will show you how you can harmonize with your environment on a physical and spiritual level. It will give you very strong protective energies and strength for your body, mind and spirit.
Like all organic gemstones, caring for Ammolite requires extra attention. Ammolite can be cleaned with warm water and a soft cloth. Mild soap or detergent can be used if needed, but avoid harsh chemicals, including bleach, perfume or hairspray. Excessive heat and acid can weaken stability and iridescence.
