Ammonites are one of the most widely known fossils, ammonites are eoliths of now-extinct marine molluscs called ammonoids. Due to the sheer number of ammonoids before they became extinct 65 million years ago, there is quite an abundance of fossils found today. The name ammonite comes from the god Ammon, who had spiral ram horns and was originally an Ethiopian or Libyan deity that later was worshiped all over Egypt and parts of Greece. Ammonites are extinct relatives of sea creatures such as the modern Nautilus from Palau. Ammonites lived during the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Together, these represent a time interval of about 140 million years.
It's no surprise that ammonites, with their spiral shape, are symbols of change and positive motion. The spiral draws in negative energy, filtering it through the chambers and releasing fresh, positive energy. Ammonites are associated with ancient knowledge, which makes sense considering how long these fossils have been around.
