Ammolite, a gemstone formed by prehistoric ammonites, is found only in south-central Alberta. The Ammonite Factory is the smallest of the companies that prepare jewellery from this rare gemstone. Everything on sale in this factory/studio is made on site. Nothing on sale here is cheap, but the price is better than in the big Banff tourist shops. Most mornings you can catch a tour that explains the origin of the gem and how it's prepared. Well worth a visit.
