Ammonites were living sea creatures that belonged to the phylum mollusks and are in the class cephalopod. Ammonites existed in the past are closely related to todays creatures such as octopus and squids. Ammonite contain the chemical compound aragonite, which is the same mineral composed in nacre (mother of pearl). Ammonites lived in dinasour age within spiral shells, and they are said to have sharp beaks with jaws and tentacles.
Ammonites went extinct about 66 million years ago. When these ammonites died, they sank to the bottom of oceins in which they lived and were covered in layers of sediment. For Ammonite to be formed they were buried deep under the sea without oxygen and heat. Canadian Ammonites are now found as fossils that have been exposed by erosion along the river banks in Alberta, Canada . Ammonites are found throughout the world, are perfect index fossils and are among the most common fossils found today due to the fact that they lived together in groups and reproduced extensively. Only in Alberta, Canada are Ammonites found with a wide spectrum of colour, debate arises as to why Alberta Canada is the only place where Colourful Ammonites are found.

Ammonite has a rich history with the First Nations in Southern Alberta and was identifed by European explorers in 1903. Canadian Ammolite is well recognized for it's brilliant array of color, hence it is used as jewelry which separates it from other fossil materials including Ammonite from other parts of the world. It can be found in different colors such as red, green, yellow, blue, violet, indigo, orange, purple and pink often with many colours being found on a single gemstone. it is sometimes found that Ammonites sold from parts of the world other than Alberta, Canada have painted in colour to emulate Canadain Ammolite; this painted in colour is faily easily spotted as a fake since it most often does not have the colour shift (change in colour) that is found in Canadian Ammolite.
