In recent years a small supply of colorful ammonites have been found. Almost all colors of the rainbow have been found, including red, green, or purple, plus various shades of blue, yellow, and pink. The beauty of the colorful ammonites has made them sought after by collectors from around the world. These ammonites include cleoniceras, desmoceras, nautilus, beudanticeras, argonticeras, aieoceras, colignoceras, dactylioceras, alligaticeras, and perisphinctes to name a few. Most are around 65 million years old, and range up to 135 million years old. Less than 1% of the ammonites found around the world have colour on them. This makes the colorful ammonites sought after by collectors, as 99% are found without fiery colour. Some believe that the fiery colour is a manifestation of the millions of years of energy, power, and good luck stored within the ammonite. The feng shui beliefs tell us that these colorful ammonites may be used for meditation. The Indians of southern Alberta believed the colorful ammonites brought good luck and fortune. A lot of time and effort goes into cleaning, polishing and preparing these pieces for display. May you enjoy your fossil specimen as it is a scientific find as well as a link to our ancient past.
