Reimagined Components: Genuine Ammonite fossil with arrow strung on a 26'' 3mm gun metal box link chain in a unique lariat design
1888's Take: The lariat design, also known as a Y-necklace, holds a distinct correlation to the number 3 with its three pointing directions. The ammonite fossil, commonly associated with its ties to the Third Eye chakra, makes its mark as the third crucial component in reaching a higher sense of awareness. We have always used our two biological eyes to physically see, but we must acknowledge the third energetic eye to conceptually see. By wearing this piece, the ancient power of the Ammonite will assist you in seeing beyond what is physically there, granting you great clarity and wisdom, and the addition of the arrow will help guide the wearer to look in the right direction, as not to get lost in unimportant/undesirable matters.
Now extinct, the ammonite mollusk was a shelled cephalopod, usually appearing in a coiled, spiral shape. The extinction of ammonites coincided with the extinction of dinosaurs. Ammonites inhabited the world’s oceans and now appear as fossils in marine rocks. Because of their rapid evolution and wide distribution, ammonite fossils provide a useful tool for indexing and dating rocks. It is said that the original discus used by the ancient Greeks in their Olympics was in fact a fossilized ammonite. In India, ammonite fossils are identified with the god Vishnu and are used in various ceremonies. They are mostly collected in Nepal, from the bed of the River Gandaki where it cuts through Jurassic sediments. These fossils are known as "shaligram shila". The word ammonite is derived from Ammon, an Egyptian god who took the form of a ram. Ammonites are similar in appearance to a ram's horn.
Ammonite activates metaphysical powers and inter-dimensional exploration. Ammonite is particularly effective when placed on the third eye chakra. It represents coming full circle and knowing a place for the first time. Ammonite has the soul’s path encoded within it and is a useful support for rebirthing.
This stone takes you deep into your center and into completion. It activates personal empowerment and the spiritual will. Ammonite converts negative energy into a gently flowing positive spiral. This stone is a powerful Karmic cleanser if placed on the third eye. This stone also releases your mental obsessions and past life imperatives.
An arrow knows where it will land the moment it is let loose. Once the archer releases, there is no second chance. At birth we all begin a journey with our inner arrow guiding the way, so follow your arrow, feel the wind in your hair & enjoy the ride!
