Inspired by the fiery red Ammolite gem, I created this hot pendant. I fused the edges of my sterling silver and added a 5 mm Onyx cabochon to balance the colour. The pendant measures 35 x 19 mm and the Ammolite gem is 19 x 17 mm.
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.
