KORITE is the direct source of the finest ammolite available. Since 1979, KORITE has been the largest, most trusted source of the colourful gemstone and it controls more than 90 per cent of the world’s known ammolite resources. The KORITE mine is the only fully operational, legal commercial ammolite mine in the entire world. Ammolite is the gemstone that is created from the ammonite fossil, and dates back 71 million years ago. Ammolite is considered one of the rarest gemstones in the world.

In addition to mining ammolite, KORITE's design and production division sells fine jewelry and decor pieces in more than 28 countries. KORITE has been selected by the Canadian government as an official supplier for Canada’s 150th birthday. Private factory tours can be arranged by appointment.
