Ammolite is one of the few biogenic gemstones. Ammolite was declared a gemstone in 1981, and it was given precious gemstone status in 2004. They are considered one of the rarest gemstones.
Origin: Alberta, Canada

We proudly use recycled metals (silver, gold, copper) in our jewelry. The wire we use is recycled and manufactured in the USA.
Argentium Silver is made with a touch of germanium. It presents a bright white color that is closer to fine silver than traditional sterling and is extremely slow to tarnish under most conditions. With 93.5% pure silver, Argentium meets the legal standard to be quality-marked as sterling silver. All Argentium is made from reclaimed silver and its sources are guaranteed by Argentium International Ltd.
Metaphysical: Ammolite has long been believed to be a stone of luck by the Blackfoot Indians and is called Inskim or Buffalo Stone. This name refers to a Blackfoot legend wherein a woman first discovers the stone and it brings luck to her tribe. The tribe is suffering from hunger, and the next day after discovering the stone and bringing it back to their camp, a huge gathering of buffalo was spotted nearby. Ammolite is believed to possess healing powers and is often added to medicine bundles. Feng Shui followers believe Ammolite has the power to detoxify the body and improve overall well being by improving the body’s flow of energy.
All made with love and appreciation!
