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 (almost square) cut cabs exhibit blue and green flashes when moved in the light. I have taken photos in natural (dull) light.
When not moved, the stones look deep brown/black.
Flat backed and polished on the face only.
