  • Ammolite

    Ammolite

    Ammolite Meanings

    Keywords: Prosperity, well-being, improving flow of energy, elemental power, longevity Chakras: All Elements: All Zodiac Sign: Capricorn Number: 7 Ammolite Crystal Healing Properties: Ammolites are a high vibration crystal believed to help activate both the etheric and physical DNA, awakening our awareness to the "perfect" human state, in order to bring about evolutionary shifts in consciousness. Ammolites carry the full spectrum of colours of the first 7 chakras and the shell is in the form of a spiral, chakra energy flows in a spiral and so they can be used to improve the flow of energy or chi and transform negative energy into positive energy.  Ammolites can increase stamina, relieve trauma and be used in meditation to connect with past lives. They are stones of luck, prosperity and well being, helping to alleviate depression and exhaustion. Ammolite History and Uses: Also called gem Ammonite or Korite, the word Ammolite is taken from the name of the Ancient Egyptian God Ammon, who was represented by a ram's head with twisted horns. This representation looked similar to the shell of the Ammonites which existed in prehistoric times. In the tradition of Feng Shui it is called the Seven Colour Prosperity Stone, the beautiful iridescent colours of Ammolite in all the shades of the rainbow, represent the harmonious balance of fire, earth, metal, water, and wood. It is believed that the Ammolite absorbed all the knowledge of the universe, and is therefore able to enhance wisdom, increase wealth and improve the flow of chi. Placed in the home it is said to transform negative energy, bring harmony and increase the vitality of the occupants and their visitors. The Blackfoot Indians refer to it as Buffalo Stone because it brought luck to the wearer during the buffalo hunt. Care instructions: Ammolite, being an organic gemstone, requires extra care; do not use a commercial cleaning solution or ultrasonic cleaner and don't leave it soaking in liquid. Keep it away from perfumes, hairspray and household chemicals. Ammolite Geological Description: Ammolite is an organic (biogenic) gemstone, like pearls and amber, with a hardness of 3.5 - 5. It is formed from the iridescent shells (mother of pearl or nacre) of fossilised Ammonites, a type of ancient nautilus. They first existed in the Devonian period (over 400 million years ago) and went extinct at the end of the Cretaceous period. Ammonites were mollusks with shells that were tightly coiled on a single plane like a wheel. The shells of ammonites had hollow chambers separated by walls called septa. A tube called the siphuncle, connected the body with the chambers allowing the animal to fill them with water or air, changing its buoyancy in order to rise or descend in the ocean water column. The soft-bodied animal living in this shell most-likely resembled an octopus but with shorter arms. Only the last and largest chamber was occupied by the living animal, as it matured and grew, larger chambers were added at the opening. Ammonites varied in size from 2 meters (6.5 feet) down to 2 cm (0.75 inches) in diameter. The Ammonites, like all molluscs, secreted aragonite (a form of calcium carbonate and conchiolin) called nacre to form layers which built up over time. These layers diffract light at different intensities creating an iridescent vivid coloured crystalline surface much like the Paua shells of modern times. Ammolites are found in the Bearpaw Shale Formation in Alberta Canada and their wonderful colours are thought to have been created by the conditions in which they were formed. The inland subtropical sea, referred to now as the Western Interior Seaway, just east of the Rocky Mountains near Alberta Canada, receded near the end of the Mesozoic era and all the Ammonites died. Their remains were covered in mineral rich volcanic ash which flowed down from the mountains in rivers and buried the ammonites in a series of compressed layers of bentonite clay.  Affirmation: I convert all energy that I receive into positivity and love.

Ammonites are especially useful for past life recall and to contact spirit guides. Traditionally they were used to honour ancestors and to connect to ancient sources of knowledge. Ammonite History and Uses: Ammonites are invertebrates and extinct members of the subclass Ammonoidea, class Cephalopoda. Modern members include the nautilus, squid, cuttlefish and octopus. Ammonites first appeared during the Middle Devonian Period around 400 million years ago. They became especially abundant and widespread in the seas of the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, 175 million to 65 million years ago. Ammonites were mollusks with shells that were predominantly tightly coiled on a single plane like a wheel. The shells of ammonites had hollow chambers separated by walls called septa. A tube called the siphuncle, connected the body with the chambers allowing the animal to fill them with water or air, changing its buoyancy in order to rise or descend in the ocean water column. The soft-bodied animal living in this shell most-likely resembled an octopus but with shorter arms. Only the last and largest chamber was occupied by the living animal. As it matured and grew, larger chambers were added at the opening. Ammonites varied in size from 2 meters (6.5 feet) down to 2 cm (0.75 inches) in diameter. The name "ammonite" is derived from the name of the ancient Egyptian god Ammon who believed these creatures were divine. Ammon is represented in ancient literature by the head of a ram with twisted spiral horns that are reminiscent of an ammonites spiraled shells. Pliny the Elder, the Roman historian, described ammonites as the holiest stones in ancient Aethiopia because they were believed to bring prophetic dreams. Ammonites have had a long association with serpents in English legend. The 7th Century Saint Hilda of Whitby turned an infestation of snakes to stone to enable an abbey to be constructed. These petrified “snakestones” were carved or painted with a head on them and sold as pious souvenirs.  During the early 19th century English fossil hunters referred to ammonites as cornemonius, a corruption of the Latin name hammonis cornu. Ammonites were used in folk medicine across Europe for snake bites, fertility, and birthing pains. In 18th century Germany and England they were added to water as “drakestones” (“dragonstone”) or “crampstones” to treat livestock. Sliced in half to make a pair, they were often given as wedding presents because they represented a journey and two parts coming together as a whole. Ammonite Geological Description: Fossils (from Latin fossus, literally ”having been dug up”) are the mineralized or otherwise preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms.  In ancient times they were believed to be a gift from the stars and were revered by many cultures. Because of their age they have been used throughout the centuries  as a talisman for protection and long life. Fossilization is actually a rare occurrence because organic materials tend to decompose and the process requires the relatively quick preservation of bodily remains. Normally, the remains need to be covered by sediment or trapped in resin as soon as possible. However there are exceptions to this, such as if an organism comes to rest in an anoxic (without oxygen) environment at the bottom of a lake. The oldest known structured fossils date from 3.5 billion years ago. There are several different types of fossils and fossilization processes including permineralisation, mold or replacement fossils, compression fossils, resin fossils and trace fossils. Many fossils available on the market are from Morocco, which has vast deposits of Devonian Limestone which date back three hundred fifty million years ago. Other areas prominent for fossils are China, the USA, Germany, Canada, Russia and Australia. Affirmation: I will allow myself to open to the process of change and all the possibilities it brings.

Fossils can assist you in your quest for transition, transformation and personal growth, helping you to understand the process of change. They can help you instil quality and excellence in your environment. Orthoceras History and Uses: Orthoceras fossils have been found dating back to the Ordovician period ( 400+ million years ago) and are the earliest recognizable animals. They are ancestors to the modern day squid. Even though they were among the earliest forms of life, this class of nautiloid is still considered to be one o f the most intelligent forms of ocean life. The Orthoceras ranged in size from a few inches in length to over six feet. They could swim as well as crawl on the ocean floor. By filling the chambers in their shells with air they could float through the seas propelling themselves by squirting jets of water. As they died their shells accumulated upon the ocean floor, then covered by sediments they transformed into stone over the ages. Having a long straight shell their fossils have an iridescent gemlike quality when polished. Orthoceras are commonly found in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. Fossils (from Latin fossus, literally ”having been dug up”) are the mineralized or otherwise preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms. In ancient times they were believed to be a gift from the stars and were revered by many cultures. Because of their age they have been used throughout the centuries  as a talisman for protection and long life. Fossils Geological Description: Fossilization is actually a rare occurrence because organic materials tend to decompose and the process requires the relatively quick preservation of bodily remains. Normally, the remains need to be covered by sediment or trapped in resin as soon as possible. However there are exceptions to this, such as if an organism comes to rest in an anoxic (without oxygen) environment at the bottom of a lake. The oldest known structured fossils date from 3.5 billion years ago.There are several different types of fossils and fossilization processes including permineralisation, mold or replacement fossils, compression fossils, resin fossils and trace fossils. Many fossils available on the market are from Morocco, which has vast deposits of Devonian Limestone which date back three hundred fifty million years ago. Other areas prominent for fossils are China, the USA, Germany, Canada, Russia and Australia. Affirmation: I will allow myself to open to the process of change and all the possibilities it brings.

They come from a large prehistoric Lamna Obliqua shark, now known as an Otodus Obliquus or Mackeral shark. The name is derived from the Greek word "lamna" which means fish of prey, and was named after the legendary monster Lamia. These creatures lived in the late Paleocene and Eocene Ages, between 40 and 60 million years ago. Growing to 9 - 10 metres long and weighing 15 tons they lived across a large area of the oceans, as fossil teeth of these creatures have been found in Africa, Europe, Asia and North America. These prehistoric sharks are closely related to our modern day Mako sharks and were believed to be aggressive and to hunt in packs. The largest shark to exist in prehistoric times was the Megladon, meaning "big tooth" which grew to over 18 metres and looked like a stocky Great White shark, in fact sharks are so perfectly designed that they have changed very little over many millennia. Fossils (from Latin fossus, literally ”having been dug up”) are the mineralized or otherwise preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms. In ancient times they were believed to be a gift from the stars and were revered by many cultures.

However there are exceptions to this, such as if an organism comes to rest in an anoxic (without oxygen) environment at the bottom of a lake. The oldest known structured fossils date from 3.5 billion years ago.There are several different types of fossils and fossilization processes including permineralisation, mold or replacement fossils, compression fossils, resin fossils and trace fossils. Many fossil shark teeth are from Morocco, which has vast deposits of Devonian Limestone which dates back to three hundred and fifty million years ago. As with all sharks, their skeleton was made of cartilage which does not fossilize, so only fossilized vertebrae and teeth survive and have been found in Africa, Europe, Asia and North America.

    Trilobite Meanings

    Keywords: Transition, transformation, personal growth Chakras: Base, Solar Plexus Element: Storm, Earth Zodiac Signs: Capricorn, Virgo Number: 8 Trilobite Crystal Healing Properties: Fossils are a wonderful tool to assist you in moving from the old to the new and to be receptive to the fresh, innovative forces that are available to you. Fossils can assist you in your quest for transition, transformation and personal growth, helping you to understand the process of change. They can help you instil quality and excellence in your environment. Trilobite History and Uses: Trilobites were Marine arthropods living in the Early Cambrian To Late Permian Period (570 million – 230 million years ago). Trilobites were hard-shelled, segmented creatures that grew in various sizes from just three millimeters long, to a length of 70 centimeters. They were among the world’s first arthropods, a phylum of hard-shelled creatures with multiple body segments and jointed legs (although the legs, antennae and other finer structures of trilobites only very rarely are preserved). Scientists believe they reproduced sexually, molted and underwent a series of life stages. We know trilobites lived in a variety of marine environments over the course of their existence on our planet. Feeding habits are believed to have been varied including predators, scavengers, filter-feeders and parasites, depending on both type of trilobite and life stage. The majority are believed to have been predator / scavengers due to the presence of a calcified mouthpart called a ’hypostome’. The most common fossil of trilobites is the mineralized dorsal exoskeleton of the creature. This is found in partial form from molting (shedding the shell as it grows) or in complete form when the animal was buried and died intact Fossils (from Latin fossus, literally ”having been dug up”) are the mineralized or otherwise preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms. In ancient times they were believed to be a gift from the stars and were revered by many cultures. Because of their age they have been used throughout the centuries  as a talisman for protection and long life. Fossils Geological Description: Fossilization is actually a rare occurrence because organic materials tend to decompose and the process requires the relatively quick preservation of bodily remains. Normally, the remains need to be covered by sediment or trapped in resin as soon as possible. However there are exceptions to this, such as if an organism comes to rest in an anoxic (without oxygen) environment at the bottom of a lake. The oldest known structured fossils date from 3.5 billion years ago.There are several different types of fossils and fossilization processes including permineralisation, mold or replacement fossils, compression fossils, resin fossils and trace fossils. Many fossils available on the market are from Morocco, which has vast deposits of Devonian Limestone which date back three hundred fifty million years ago. Other areas prominent for fossils are China, the USA, Germany, Canada, Russia and Australia. Affirmation: I will allow myself to open to the process of change and all the possibilities it brings.
