Ammonite is a 70 million year old spiral-shelled mollusk. The extinction of the ammonites coincided with that of the dinosaurs. Ammonites inhabited the world’s oceans and now appear as fossils in marine rocks. It is said that the original discus used in the first Ancient Greek Olympics was a fossilized ammonite. The word Ammonite is derived from “Ammon,” an Eqyptian Ram God. In India, Ammonites are associated with the God Vishnu. Ammonite is believed by Feng Shui masters to be a powerful wealth stone bringing prosperity and grandeur. In some folk traditions, Ammonites are said to help ease childbirth as their spiral forms remind us to keep breathing.
