Spiral Ammonite fossils. Not at all a mineral, but a fossil! Ammonites roamed the seas over 64 million years ago & 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, & they can also be found worldwide. Ancient relatives of the squid & octopus, they went extinct over 65 million years ago.
This pair is from Madagascar & are unique in that they have some opalization on the backside of the fossil!
Each piece has vugs or openings where tiny brown calcite crystals grew. The other compartments of the Ammonite are filled with a mudstone.
You could use the pair as paperweights or display them as mirror images of each other. Either way they would be a killer addition to any collection.
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".
