Canadian Ammolite Rectangle Cabs - AAA Grade - Matching Pair
Superb Ammolite is a gemstone, coveted for its beautiful iridescent colours. The most desirable shades are blue and red. Many cabs have lines, which are the natural pattern on the ammolite and not flaws.
The colours are from the natural shell nacre of fossilised Ammonites, an extinct creature related to modern day nautilus.
This matching pair of rectangular cut cabs exhibit dark blue/purple flash when moved in the light - would make lovely earring stones. I have taken photos in natural (dull) light and with a flash in artificial light. When the cabs are not showing the blue flash, they appear black - please see photos.
Flat backed and polished on the face only.
4.3 x 9.4 x 3.3 mm and 4.2 x 9.3 x 3.3 mm.
