Naturals are the traditional single sided Ammolite Gemstones that have a single layer of Ammolite on the front of the stone. Stabalizing the stone, is a layer of black Basonite rock which naturally occurs with the Ammolite. Like Imperials they are also best suited for pendants to preserve the surface of the gemstone from wear.
Double sided Naturals or Imperials are Ammolite Gemstones that have a layer of Ammolite on the front and back of the stone. They are best suited for pendants and create a unique double-sided jewellery design.
Triplets contain three seperate layers: The first layer is a protective Quartz cap. The second layer is the Ammolite and the third layer is a black Basonite rock. This style of gemstone is the most durable and can easily accomodate earring, ring, bracelet or pendant designs. This style of Ammolite comes in standard calibrated gemstone sizes in oval, trillian, round, princess and triangular shapes.
There is a vast variety of colors and patterns in Ammolite. Exposure to the elements yields many unique crackled textures sometimes referred to as Dragonskin, Cobblestone and Stained Glass. Some gemstones have a more smooth pattern than others and much likes snowflakes; no two Ammolite gems are identical.
Ammolite comes from the fossilized shells of the cephalopod mullosk Placentriceras Meeki and Placenticeras Intercalare. These mollusks thrived in tropical seas until becoming extinct at the end of the Mesozoic era.
These Ammonites were inhabitants of a prehistoric subtropical sea called the Bearpaw Sea or Western Interior Seaway that extends along Alberta and Saskatchewan also reaching into the Montana in the USA.
