This handmade, wire wrapped pendant is made with a freshwater pearl and an ammolite- the most rare gemstone on earth found only in the area of Alberta Canada. If you are unfamiliar with ammolite, it is the fossilized remains of the ancient ammonite sea creature. While it was fossilizing, the minerals in this one area of the world helped to create the beautiful colors you see. The color layers are a lot like the nacre of a pearl. Ammolite is notoriously difficult to photograph, but I did my best. The last photo is taken outside. The stone is very nondescript until the light hits it. It will show no colors or a variety of colors depending on the angle of light. This one has red, green and yellow.
This is a "natural", meaning it is as it comes from the ground and polished. It is not a doublet or triplet which is usually how you find them in the big box stores.
I made the setting with sterling silver (not filled, plated or coated) wire. I added a beautiful white coin pearl to the setting and put little "feet" on the back to help angle it up to the light. This LOVES light and will light up like Christmas tinsel.
