This is one of the primary Ammonites from the region which is roughly Triassic in age. The word ammonite is derived from the Egyptian god Ammon, who was depicted wearing a ram's horn. Pliny the Elder first recorded these fossils in 79 A.D. near Pompeii and originally named them Ammonis Cornua after their horn-like shape. Ammonites have been found as far back as 420 millions years ago and went extinct with the dinosaurs roughly 60 million years back. Ammonite make amazing décor items in any shop or office space. Fossils are unique ancient remnants of our earths deep past.
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 primarily associated with the third eye chakra, with a secondary in the root chakra.
