In Praise of Ammolite

When Sue and Rolf Schmidt got their January issue of JCK with the gemstone quiz featuring ammolite—or ammonite—they scrambled to e-mail their correct response. Trouble was, by the time they’d answered the quiz, so had many others, so the owners of Rolf Schmidt the Goldsmith, Victoria, British Columbia, were too late to win the prize. But that didn’t dampen the couple’s spirits; in fact, they mailed a treat to JCK: photographs of their own custom-made jewelry featuring ammolite.

Writes Sue: “The stone has so many interesting and iridescent appearances, and the most glorious array of colors. … Perhaps these pictures will inspire you to create a beautiful pendant. … Enjoy!”
