The Rare Gemstone Ammolite. This dazzling iridescent fossil of an 80 million year old ammonite measuring 2 feet in diameter was discovered near Alberta, Canada and is a particularly rare example of an ancient sea creature that went extinct at the same time as most dinosaurs. The spectacular coloration is the result of millions of years of high temperatures and pressures, creating a gemstone known as ammolite.Ammonite, opalised, 254nm fluorescence, photograph by The Bob.

Rare Opalized Wood: "Petrified wood is basically fossilized wood that has had its organic matter replaced by a mineral such as agate, bit by bit, as it decomposes. The wood structure is maintained, but the wood fibers are slowly changed into stone. Sometimes a jasper, quartz, pyrite or even opal(shown above) can be found fossilized in wood."
