This is an incredible Huge Ammolite Cabochon. It has a gem grade resin coating over it to protect the natural surface. Ammolite is very fragile, when not coated with a protectant of some kind. This Cab is so big that I had to use a different Gemstone mm gauge to measure it, because mine did not get this big.
I took several pictures from different angles, because there is a ton of fire, and color change in this piece and it looks different from all angles. If you are unsure about it, message or email me and I will send you a video, so you can see the fire.
Ammolite is a rare, iridescent, gem-quality material cut from the fossilized shells of extinct sea creatures. Found only in the Bearpaw Formation in Alberta, Canada, this organic gemstone has a dazzling range of colors and patterns and is highly desired for cabochons and assembled jewelry pieces.
Ammolite is also known asaapoak(Kainahfor "small, crawling stone"), gem ammonite,calcentine, andKorite.
