Not at all a mineral, but a fossil! Ammonites roamed the seas over 64 million years ago and belong to a group of predators known as cephalopods, which include their living relatives like the octopus, squid, cuttlefish, & nautilus. They went extinct along with many other dinosaurs of their time, and they can also be found worldwide.
I love this piece with all of my heart. The ridges along the entire fossil are so preserved & so prominent that when you press into the ridges they leave indents in your hand. I love this piece so much because it has such a spiral to it that it is almost hypmotising.
Ammonite is believed to be effective when placed directly on the Third Eye chakra. It represents coming full circle & knowing a place for the first time. Ammonite is known for its spiral shape symbolizing continual change in nature & influencing those around it to let go of the past. It is used to activate Kundalini or "life path energies".
