Ammonite fossils are known as stones of support. They promote stability and structure, therefore creating clear flowing energy. Serving as protective stones, they stimulate one's survival instincts. Ammonites are great for new projects, relationships, and endeavors because they help one see the whole picture from the start. Working with Ammonites help attract wealth and wisdom. In addition, Ammonites remind us of the benefits of conscious breathing. Conscious breathing helps relieve stress and alleviate depression. Fossils, alike, represent longevity, protection, one's connection to the past, and past life work.
Ammonites are fossilized extinct marine creatures that became extinct 60-200 million years ago, along with the dinosaurs. Their structure was similar to a snail, usually appearing in a coiled, spiral shape.They were a part of the cephalopod family (squid, octopus, cuttlefish). Cephalopods have eyes and other senses that rival those of humans. They are masters of optical illusions and are best known for their ability to camouflage. They rely on camouflage as their main protection from predators. No animal comes close to the speed, appearance, and diversity of these animals. They can control their skin's texture and color to fit in.
In India, Ammonite fossils were related to the god Vishu, the protector and preserver of the universe. Ammonites were used as medicine in Europe for snake bites, fertility, and pain relief during birth. During the 18th century, farmers would put ammonites into their water to treat their livestock. The Chinese Feng Shui practitioners suggested Ammonites brought wealth and good fortune.
