Honored as a sacred traditional talisman among the indigenous peoples of Canada from which it hails, Ammolite is the crystalized backing of an ammonite fossil that has been compressed under immense tectonic pressure within the earth for millions of years. During this time, the fossil undergoes a unique (and as yet unexplained) transformation, emerging with the breath-taking iridescent coloration they are so prized for today. Feng Shui practitioners consider Ammolite (known as "The Seven Color Prosperity Stone" in Chinese) to have absorbed the knowledge of the universe during its long slumber in the earth, bringing about enhanced wisdom, increased wealth, and and improved flow of chi.
Our *new* Teardrop-style pendants reveal an elegant, angular pattern, only visible within the diagonal cross-section of specifically-shaped Pinecones. Due to the beautiful, diverse patterns displayed on both the front and back of these unique pendants, we’ve photographed both sides of these truly “reversible” new designs!
First created 7 years ago, we’ve waited to offer these pendants because they require a rare shape and symmetry of Pinecone, and are much more challenging to create. However, after ongoing requests from friends and family, we’ve created an initial “Trial Batch” of Teardrops to share with our broader Pinecone Family.
