Reimagined Components: Agatized Ammonite fossil necklace on 22" brown leather.
1888 Nate's Take: "Hundreds of millions of years ago this was a living creature...enough said."
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 souls path encoded within it and it 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 releases your mental obsessions and past life imperatives.
