Iridescent Ammonite is a fossil that demonstrates the Fibonacci Spiral and the healthy, balanced unfolding of life. When it is iridescent, it displays a natural rainbow spectrum of colors.
Ammonites lived for approximately 140 million years during Earth’s Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. They are the ancestors of the cuttlefish, octopus, and squid. Their shells were supposedly made up of aragonite and mother-of-pearl.
The name ammonite comes from Amun, and Egyptian god linked to the ram. It is named for its likeness to a ram’s horn.
Feng Shui leaders believed Ammonites were associated with Chi Lin, a beast of myth. They thought these fossils could bring about wealth and fame.
