Life in Stone – An Exploration of Fossilized Gemstones

The geological wealth of our world, including jewels and minerals, is typically considered to be quite separate from organic life. Some exceptional fossilized gemstones, however, peel away time to defy this categorization by showing us life in stone. Fossil gemstones are a captivating window into the past, formed when minerals replace the organic material of ancient creatures. In this way, the echo of a living thing which perished long ago can be enshrined in stone.
Fossil gemstones are exceptionally unique and prized by collectors for their history, beauty, and diversity. Depending on the geological circumstances, a fossilized organism may be replaced by a variety of mineral substances including opal, pyrite, or agate. The living things that appear as fossil gemstones today include plants, marine life, and even dinosaur bones.

A beautiful and long extinct marine creature called the Ammonite is beloved among fossil gemstones. This mollusc lived in an elegant multi-chambered shell, sometimes iridescent, shimmering with rainbow colors. This rare fossilized ammonite type, called Ammolite, has only been found one place in the world: Alberta, Canada. Other Ammonites exhibit the creatures form more truly, while taking on striking properties of the mineral of which it is comprised. For example, the Ammonite displayed in Adam’s “Fossile” pendant has a distinctive sparkle owing to the mineral pyrite. Adam sought to celebrate and complement these striking ancient creatures with modern design for uniquely timeless jewelry.
