Ammonites are fossilized Ammonoids, which are an extinct group of marine mollusc animals in the subclass Ammonoidea. Ammonites make excellent index fossils to pinpoint exact geological time periods. The ammonoid cephalopods became extinct along with the dinosaurs at the close of the Cretaceous era.
This beautifully intact Ammonite fossilized specimen has an incredible display of steely-grey to bronze Iron Pyritized patterns. The patterns on the surface of this fossil have feathered out in very distinct formations of bronze to brown/grey, and when a light is placed behind this large piece you can see through the exceptional organic sections.
Ammonite is a fascinating fossil to study, and it is believed to carry metaphysical benefits. The spiral shaping is thought to symbolize continual change, and it is believed that because of their great age they have absorbed energy throughout the eons and can be used to stimulate Chi (life-force).
