Fossilized Shrimp pair in limestone found in Solnhofen Limestone, Germany. Each individually measures about 15" x 13" x 1". It contains a Carpopenaeus (an extinct genus of prawn/ shrimp). Estimated to be 150 million years old. The Solnhofen Limestone or Solnhofen Plattenkalk, formally known as the Altmühltal Formation, is a Jurassic Konservat-Lagerstätte that preserves a rare assemblage of fossilized organisms, including highly detailed imprints of soft bodied organisms such as sea jellies.
Revered by many cultures for centuries, Fossils, because of their age, are often utilized as talismans for protection and long life. They are links to the past and, as such, can be helpful for past-life visualization, astral travel and increased knowledge of ancient ways. Fossils are a great grounding stone, connecting the user to the Divine Feminine energy of the Earth.
