Korite Ammolite

We are proud to carry Canada’s first Ammolite jewellery by Korite International who mines near Welling, Alberta. Ammolite is formed from an ancient marine fossil called Ammonite, which is only found commerically in one isolated region of Southern Alberta, Canada. Seventy-one million years of tectonic pressure, heat and mineralization have resulted in the formation of this geological wonder.
