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 orange and green flashes when moved in the light. I have taken photos in natural (dull) light.
The photos show these to be mainly green, but as I was looking at them, I mainly saw orange flashes - the camera didn't pick this up as well.
Flat backed and polished on the face only.
13.6 x 11.7 x 3.6 mm and 13.7 x 11.8 x 3.6 mm.
