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 small Ammonite fossil has a beautiful sheen and polish to it that shows off the natural patterns and formations within the specimen. The color has plenty of variation, and when magnified in some way you can see even more exceptional details and patterns. Great for school projects or just for collecting!
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).
