Ammonite represents Mother Earth and our will to survive all things. Indeed, the Ammonite has endured millions of years of elements and preservation in order to grace our homes today. Evolutionary in composition, Ammonites uncover age-old wisdom that is remembered in our subconscious, converting it to conscious thought. It enhances life-force energy and kundalini. It awakens connections to past-lives and the Akasha.
Ammonite fossils are rich in their ability to transmute negative energy. The natural spiral pattern allows negative energy to flutter its way through the spirals until it has diffused and exited. Positive energy follows, revealing Source in the center of the spiral, and the ability to release negative energy at the other end. Ammonites prompt introspection and our attachment to ego-based beliefs. As we study our ego, we find balance in the light of our soul, and are enriched with deep understanding that every moment is in alignment with Divine perfection. This fossil engages the root and the third eye chakras.
Ammonite is not a gemstone, but a fossil. Ammolite, its cousin, is considered a gemstone because of the opalized formation of minerals which settled into the openings in the spiral. Ammolites tend to be quite gemmy and are spectacular when polished.
