Fossils are remnants of prehistoric life, naturally formed from animal bones, leaves, or shells. The imprints of plants or animals that were once alive create body fossils, whereas trace fossils show evidence of where an organism lived, such as tracks or burrows. Shells are of the most common fossil type, largely ammonites, having lived between 240 and 65 million years ago.
Mosasaurs are a prehistoric group of large marine reptiles that went extinct during the K-T impact event. High sea levels during the Cretaceous period have made it possible to find Mosasaur remains in many parts of the world. There is debate whether the Mosasaur was warm or cold blooded, but they are believed to have birthed live young. Their palates contain paired fenestrae, suggesting the possibility of a forked tongue—such as a snake or monitor lizard.
Due to their age, fossils are used as talismans of protection and longevity. The deep connection with Earth heightens intuition, especially regarding crystals and ancient knowledge. Fossils link to the past, granting visualization of past-lives, and aiding astral travel. Encouraging harmony, dignity, splendor and organization, while bringing awareness to the life-cycle and security when embracing change. Fossils open us to mystery, releasing mental obsessions, offering a sense of charisma, charm and beauty.
