Fluorite, Fossilised: Amber, Ammonite (Ammolite), Wood.
Fluorite is allochromatic, meaning that it can be tinted with elemental impurities. Fluorite comes in a wide range of colors and has consequently been dubbed "the most colorful mineral in the world". Every color of the rainbow in various shades are represented by fluorite samples, along with white, black, and clear crystals. The most common colors are purple, blue, green, yellow, or colorless. Less common are pink, red, white, brown, and black. Color zoning or banding is commonly present. The color of the fluorite is determined by factors including impurities, exposure to radiation, and the absence or voids of the color centers.

Necklaces, beads, rings, cuff links, tie pins, pendants, clip on earrings; we have a stunning range of green, yellow, orange and red ambers from around the world, including a unique range by Raitis Laivinieks.
Fossilised Ammonite: Ammolite
We have a fantastic range of ammonite and ammolite jewellery including cufflinks and pendants. Ammolite is a rare gemstone of organic origin that is fairly new to the market, with commercial mining beginning only in 1981. Ammolite is the fossilized shell of ammonites, which are composed primarily of aragonite, the same mineral that makes up nacreous pearls. Ammolite's main attraction is an opal-like play of color. It has been found only along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains of the United States and Canada, mainly in Alberta and Montana. It has been known to native people of the Americas for hundreds of years.
Fossilised wood comes in many forms of course, we have a few examples in ring and pendant settings.
