I’m wearing my Ammolite ring as I write this post.
I love my Ammolite ring because I feel I was in the flow state when I bought it.
I went to a Gem Show a couple of years ago at the Pearkes Recreation Centre in Saanich, BC. I remember when I first entered the space on the Saturday morning in August, the room was just buzzing! All of the people were in good spirits and it was as if all of the gemstones and crystals were waking up!
I didn’t know what I was looking for exactly at the Gem Show so I just kept my mind open to whatever jumped out at me. When I go to these types of shows, I like to start at one end and go through all of the booths, one by one, in order, all around the large room to see everything available before I make any decisions.
Somewhere in the middle of the room, there was a man selling loose, polished Ammolite gemstones for custom jewellery.
I’d heard about Ammolites before from my friend who wore her Ammolite necklace one day and I asked her about it because it was so colourful, unique, and lovely.
She said it’s from Alberta and she bought her jewell as a present for herself for her 50th birthday!
I made a note of the name, Ammolite, for future reference.
Meanwhile, before I left for the gem show, my mother had given me a gold ring that didn’t have any stone in it to see if I could find something for it. She said it used to have an unknown pink stone in it but when she had it cleaned, sadly, the pink crystal disintegrated! Afterwards, the naked ring sat in her jewellery box for years, waiting for a second chance to shine.
The gold ring itself has its own history. According to my mother, her parents somehow procured the ring while they were living in a displaced persons camp in Austria in the 1940’s while they were en route to immigrate to Canada.
So, my gold ring is an antique and has an ancestral tie to my family and I’m grateful for the sacrifices my grandparents made to ensure future generations (i.e. me) could lead a better life.
By the way, because Ammolite is from pre-historic times, it also symbolizes our ancestors!
Anyway, I showed the gold ring to the Ammolite sales rep/jeweller. He thought he might be able to help me find something suitable.
As we were looking at the different configurations and narrowing down the options, it seemed like the noise around us in the big room hushed and I lost track of time. I was in the zone.
We looked for colours, shape, and size, and I trusted his recommendations. Together, we found a beautiful square-shaped cut that has all of the colours of the rainbow in a pleasing pattern!
But would it fit? What if it cracks? What if the prongs that hold it in place snap off? The pressure to marry the two pieces together was on!
I held my breath and stared at the ring and the jeweler’s nimble hands as he fastened everything in place!
And then it happened! Everything came together beautifully!
The Ammolite jeweller carefully inserted the delicate Ammolite gemstone into to gold ring setting. He gently folded the prongs down to secure the stone in place and voila! A new ring was born!
I put my new Ammolite ring on my finger and beamed with delight!
Not only does my Ammolite ring connect me to my grandparents, it also taught me a valuable lesson about how creativity and manifestation work.
Earlier, I said I felt like I was in the flow state while I was buying this ring and I meant that I just let things unfold in their own way without trying to force my ego, or try to control the details, or insist on my own agenda.
I just played it by ear and followed my nose and let whatever wanted to emerge to show up. Not always easy!
I felt like I was trusting my intuition as I followed the metaphorical breadcrumbs, and somehow I managed to create this beautiful and powerful Ammolite ring for myself.
The next time you have an opportunity to bring different worlds together and create something new that never existed before, I hope you feel inspired by my Ammolite ring story.
Ammolite inspires me because it’s a natural miracle. The events that were set in motion millions of years ago, that had to take place in order for me to wear this ring today on my finger, are beyond incalculable. It’s literally the impossible becoming possible!
