Ammonites are an extinct group of predatory molluscs with spiral-shaped shells. The distinctive spiralling shape of Ammonite fossils makes them popular among collectors. But not all Ammonites are created equal. Some specimens are opalised, meaning the mineral opal has replaced the shell. The opal gives Ammonites a beautiful iridescent sheen in shiny shades of blue, green, yellow, and red. In addition to being visually stunning, opalised Ammonites offer a glimpse into the past, giving us a window into a lost world.
Ammonite is a powerful and versatile stone. Its benefits extend to the Root, Third Eye, and Crown chakras. It is known for its ability to ground and connect us to the spiritual realm. Ammonites help cleanse and purify the aura. The spiralled shape of the Ammonite is ideal for removing chakra blockages and re-opening chakras. Opalised Ammonites are particularly effective in raising the overall energy within the body. If you are looking for a stone that can help you with your spiritual journey, Ammonite is an excellent choice.
