  1. Hi everyone, I am new to this forum and have been loving it. I found a very fragile ammolite preserved in mudstone (I believe) and I want to seal it to preserve it and prevent it from falling apart. What can I use? Can resin/epoxy be used?
  2. Hey everyone, I’m new to the forum but loved fossils all my life and recently got into building a nice collection. I have a chance to acquire a very nice Ammolite Ammonite at a decent price. I’m curious though are they more desirable in or out of the matrix? The one I’m considering has lovely colors including blue and purple and is out of the matrix. Was just curious before spending that kind of coin if I should consider in matrix. Thanks in advance! Lee

    Ammolite Jumble

    Here is an aggregation of rough ammolite. It rests on the vanity of the guest suite's bath in Palatial snolly Manor. The chunks were obtained from a Canadian jewelry producer, specializing in ammolite items. My hypothesis is that the ammolite layer on these pieces was judged too thin or fractured to warrant cutting as stones for jewelry. The ammolite remains backed by thick ironstone and the pieces have been heavily consolidated. Given the varied angles of their faces, they make an ever shifting display as one moves about the room.

    Polishing Ammolite

    I stubbled on a few small pieces of ammolite while out fishing. I have searched the internet and this forum for information and have come up with several different ways to clean and polish ammolite. However I have not been able to find a detailed process from start to finish to get ammolite looking it’s best. I know there are different qualities of ammolite and some require little to no work but mine needs some work to get it to look good without getting it wet. I have tried sanding for quite a while up to 600 grit paper. That’s the finest I could find but now have found up to 3000. Should I j

    My crystallized fossils

    Here’s my crystallized fossils, enjoy!! All of them so far Ammolite from Alberta Ammonites from Madagascar
  6. I've posted some pictures of the ammonite I bought and want to polish. If you look at the third picture, (ammonite 2.jpg), you will see that on the ammonite some rainbow color resides. I want to make the whole ammonite that color. Is there any way to polish it to make the rainbow show more? Correct me if I'm wrong, but that rainbow color is fossilized mother of pearl aka Ammolite. Does anyone know the following? If you could answer, that'd be a big help. Thank you for your future words! Any suggestions welcome. You'll never know what will work. The best way to cle
  7. Hello everyone, I recently received this large 14inch ammonite and the shipper had no care in the world to put even an ounce of protection thus this is the result I'm not experienced with much prep and not confident superglue would cut it so what would you all recommend to help repair this specimen as well as clean off some of the dirt/dust layer coating alot of it?
  8. Hi decided to start showing of my collection so I started doing them in individual post here are ammonites/ammolite enjoy!!

    Ammolite with trilobite??

    Ammolite with trilobite? It can be real?
  10. We found a variety of nice fossils on a recent visit to the cliffs on the St Mary River in Southern Alberta. For early January in Canada, it was like a summer day. It took me about 15 minutes to find a 100 pound concretion and another 20 to dig it out. Then a great deal of grunting and groaning to get it up the cliff on my back. It turned out to be a gem ball. More pixs of the gem when I clean it. We also found a nice placenteris meeki suture fossil, lots of gem, and one interclare. The pictures show the cliff, uncovering the fossil and a few other shots of finds. other pixs follow
  11. Purchased at a very low price. Is this a real ammonite/ammolite or fabricated?
  12. I got these ammonites a few months ago and I was wondering if I should put any kind of protective coating on them. I have them in storage now. When I display them they will not be near any direct sunlight but I was still worried the color may fade plus the shell is very delicate. I’d prefer to leave them natural but if there is a chance they will fade then I’d prefer to put some kind of protective coating on them. Will they fade over time even if they are not in sunlight? should I coat them or leave them as is? If I so what is the best product to use and how should I apply it?

  15. Hello, I purchased this pendant online, and I am questioning its authenticity! It came in an ammolite korite white box. It looks just like a pendant photo I found on their website, but there's a stamp label Bronze RP at the top of the pendant. The last time I checked, they produce jewelry in silver and gold. Does the stamp mean it's made of bronze? Is this authentic ammolite? Thanks!
  16. Hello, I recently purchased this Canadian ammolite pendant on eBay, and I'm questioning its authenticity? It looks dark at certain angles. It only looks resplendent when exposed to a significant amount of light. thanks

    Best Places to buy Gem Ammolite?

    Hello, I am looking for reputable places to buy gem ammolite, specifically gem ammolite with a bluer color. A user had previously suggested to me two stores but I wasn't really seeing anything that caught my eye. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
