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.
Ferns have been dated back farther than 360 million years. They reproduce from spores and develop internal vein structures to carry water and nutrients, making them vascular plants. Fine sediment deposits along waterways help to form compression fossils, sometimes preserving plants in the clay, shale, and sometimes volcanic ash.
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.
