Trinity Ammolite Pendant by Nambroth Trinity Ammolite Pendant by Nambroth
A neat piece of ammolite wrapped by hand in .925 sterling silver. Ammolite is a gemstone made from the fossilized shells of Ammonites. Ammolites are now-extinct cephalopods that lived millions of years ago in the seas. Occasionally, when their shells were fossilized they were crushed by the earth's pressure for millions of years and the sells were impregnated with minerals that caused a transformation to a near opal-like quality. They are a fossil gemstone and this accounts for the different appearances they can have (this one has a neat crackle or dragonskin pattern). The colors shift and change like an opal. It's very neat.

I hand-wrap these stones with solid sterling silver wire with no soldering or casting, so they are not perfect, but are one of a kind. If you have questions I've explained a bit better here: [link]

Holy guacamole, I have been listening to a mini album called "Ammonite" for a year now, and now I finally learned what it is.

Not the stone.

Have you ever put this piece under a blacklight? It would be interesting to see if you had a good, luminecent piece of ammolite.

Yeah! Ammolite really isn't very UV reactive. The colors are created when light passes through parallel micro planes in the 'stone' to create the beautiful colors we see, much like opal.

Oh, I thouhgt it might be. I've seen rocks that look like that (only not polished) that reacted really well. Must be something different lol.

I have to say that this is the first pice of jewellery with ammolite in that I like! My mum adores the stuff, but I've never seen a piece that looks more than just some crushed coloured glass melted into a stone.

Anyway, away from the ranting :XD: I really like this pendant - the silver wire looks really good against the colours of the stone. Perfection doesn't neccessarily mean a beauitful piece of jewellery :)

Now that is a cool stone. I wondered if they had something to do with prehistoric beasties (judged from the name). I like that your descriptions are informative as well. I've learned quite a bit. =)

I don't think there's such a thing as perfection when it comes to art. It's either beautiful or it's not. And your stuff is definitely beautiful :)

It’s beautiful, truly it is. The cool thing about it , is that Ammolite is a stone truly unique to Canada, and not found anywhere in the world. But in the end, every piece I have seen is breathtaking in it’s own way, and I do love how you set this one piece. I have a small piece of Ammolite as well, a small mosaic looking piece that oddly enough looks like a small guitar pick. I don’t have anything to set it in to show it off.

But this work is truly beautiful.

I taught myself, but I think there are some tutorials online. Google "how to wire wrap jewelry" or something like that and see what comes up. Warning, it's a very expensive hobby. ;)

I wish I could afford to buy this. I'm surprised that there's a stone which is known as having a "crackle" or dragonskin appearance. I'm trying to imagine someone finding this generations ago and declaring, "Look! Here be dragons!" =D
