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 65 and 240 million years ago.

This fossilized Salix Longiacuminata leaf is dated to the Eocene Period. It was collected from the Green River Formation in the Uintah County of Utah, in the United States. The Green River Formation consists of multiple lake basins, containing well-preserved fossils dated between 5 and 53 million years of age.

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.
