Full Description

Details

Ammonites are perhaps the most widely known fossil, possessing the typically ribbed spiral-formed shell classic of the Nautilus. These creatures lived in the seas between 240 - 65 million years ago, when they became extinct along with the dinosaurs. The name 'ammonite' originates from the Greek Ram-horned god called Ammon. Ammonites belong to a group of predators known as cephalopods, which includes their living relatives the octopus, squid, cuttlefish and nautilus. Ammonites were prolific breeders, lived in schools, and are among the most abundant fossils found today. The earliest ammonites appear during the Devonian period, and the last species died out during the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event. Scientists use the various shapes and sizes of ammonite shells that appeared and disappeared through the ages to date other fossils.

"Ammolites" are Ammonite fossils found in Madagascar, that display iridescence by compression and mineralization of the Ammonite fossil. These iridescent Ammonites are often of gem quality when polished.

The Ammonite and subsequently the Nautilus are natural formations of the Golden Ratio in action. The famous Fibonacci sequence has captivated mathematicians, artists, designers, and scientists for centuries. Also known as the Golden Mean or Golden Proportion, its ubiquity and astounding functionality in nature suggests its importance as a fundamental characteristic and building block of the Universe.

The description of this golden proportion as the Divine proportion is perhaps fitting because it is seen by many as a door to a deeper understanding of beauty and spirituality in life, unveiling a hidden harmony or connectedness in so much of what we see. The ratio itself represents the transcendence of numbers through form.

Metaphysical & Healing properties of Ammonites:

The Ammonite is a very powerful earth healing fossil. Its spiral shape symbolizes continual change and evolution. Ammonites have absorbed cosmic energy over eons of time and help to stimulate the life force (Chi) within. Ammonites are often used for activating Kundalini and life path energies. The Ammonite is also often recommended to put in the home to attract health, prosperity and success.

Connecting with your Crystal

Welcome your new crystal into your home by setting aside a little one on one time for just the two of you! Sit with your crystal and feel its energy opening and connecting with your heart center. Find a special place to keep your crystal where you will see it often and be able to connect with it. Working with Crystals for Crystal Healing is a fun, easy way to elevate your personal energy and deepen your connection with Mother Earth. Each Crystal is unique and offers its own special gifts. See our Crystal Definitions page for more info on specific crystal types.

How to Activate your Crystal

Crystals love to work with a purpose! In general, they are already “Turned On” and busy doing their own thing: Elevating Energies and pumping out Good Vibes! This is their natural state. We can tap into these elevated energies and combine forces by working with our crystals to expand and elevate our own energies and to connect with our highest self. This is done through activation and will set a field of expanded energies that will help us in our daily lives as we practice and deepen this connection with our crystalline friends.

To begin an activation, clear your mind and sit quietly with your crystal. Connect with your heart center and through your heart center connect with the crystal you are holding. This crystal is sharing its love and light with you, as you share your love and light with your crystal.

Think of activation as the growing and expansion of energy layers. The first activation establishes a connection between the crystal and the user, creating the first layer. These layers continue to grow, for both ourselves and the crystal, as we continue to connect. This energy field becomes more stable over time as we continue to connect and reconnect.

Cleansing your Crystal

Stones of all kinds are energetically alive. Crystals and Gemstones carry their own vibrations and can be influenced by subtle energies and/or thoughts and actions taking place around them. Crystals also have the ability to be cleansed of influences that have touched them before or after they have come to you. When gemstones are energetically cleansed they are cleared of all energies other than their own, and until they are used again in ritual or meditation, they will generally remain cleared. For some people, it is important to cleanse, wash and purify their gemstones and crystals before using them. For others it is not. This is really a personal preference, one that you may feel into on an individual basis.

Feel into your crystal when you first receive it. How does it feel? Does it feel yummy and scrumptious; is it a pure delight? Then maybe it doesn't need cleared at all. But, if you feel guided to make this new gemstone truly a piece of your own, and perhaps also to have a special bonding session with your new crystalline friend, then cleansing your crystals should be easy and fun. Below are a few ideas for consideration, but you may be inspired by something entirely different! The key is to have an open heart and to connect with your crystals just as you would with any person or spirit guide.

Listed below is one of our favorite methods. For a more exhaustive list of possibilities, see our Crystal Cleansing Guide.

Cleansing your crystals with the method of energy and intention:

Hold your crystal with the intention of Pure Love & Light enfolding it. Feel yourself and your crystal being surrounded within a sphere of very supportive white or golden light energy. (You may also play with different colors, if you enjoy color healing!) Begin to feel Cosmic Love and Source Energy flowing throughout your body and directly into your crystal. Stay within this protective sphere for as long as you feel guided. This is also an excellent way to begin any meditation.
