I will be listing many new, high grade Russian Amonites and Simbricite cabochons with pyrite veins and druzy in them. These were professionally cut and polished for me by Russian miners/lapidary artists form Ural. You will not find such material here on Etsy or anywhere else, because Ammonite with Simbricite (the orange translucent part) in this quality is very rare. Each stone has a high gloss polished, a mirror like polish on top, and a nice polish on the back or is backed up with polished black granite. I will have a huge collection - each fossil is unique and absolutely gorgeous. They are around 80 millions years old - an echo of eternity!
<<<<<<This is an unusual color for ammonite! Taupe color with small direly orange deposit and some metallic shiny pyrite. Love the high gloss polish on this one - it almost looks watery, that's how well it is polished. Much more beautiful in hand!>>>>>>
About the stone: "SIMBIRCITE ~ This is one of the rarest gemstones in the world. New to the gemstone world, Simbircite comes from Simbirsk, Russia. It is considered an ancient stone that takes over 80 million years to form. It is actually an ammonite from the dinosaur age, that has crystalized in forms of calcite, aragonite, and quartz. The beautiful gold lines that run through it are pyrite, that has formed over time. If you look close, you may see tiny fossils, within this large fossil, of ancient sea life.
Simbircite is a warm stone. It gives energy to the person who carries it. For many nations of the world, hardened ammonites and their fragments are symbols of a prosperity, family well-being and happiness. Simbircite promotes accumulation of vital energy while absorbing negative energy, helps to get rid of indecision and suspicious feelings. It is a stone of self-assured people, it alleviates fear, calms and clears the mind. Simbircite is a stimulus stone for architects and those in the fields of construction." (c)
