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.
The evolution of fish started about 530 million years ago (Cambrian explosion), as chordates developed a skull and vertibrae, evolving into craniates and vertebrates. The early fish were jawless and eel-like, most of which are extinct today. Jawed and bony vertibrates developed during the late Ordovician period, some surviving the natural extinction events to become the modern fish of today.
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.
