History | Science

Ammonites are an extinct group from the phyllum Mollusca and class Cephalopoda that had a coiled shell, much like their "living fossil," cousin, the Nautilus. Ammonites appeared during the Devonia Period and vanished during the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event. They ranged in size from less than an inch to more than 9 feet!
Ammonites can be distinguished by their septa, the dividing walls that separate the chambers within their shell. During fossilization, those chambers were filled with silica-rich water, and with time and pressure, the silica, along with the trace minerals trapped within, agatized leaving behind the beautiful orange crystalline structure we see in these ammonite pairs.

The shape of the ammonite is especially important as the physical representation of the Fibonacci Sequence, a series of numbers put forth by its namesake, a mathematician in the early 13th Century.

Metaphysical Properties

Like it's living relative, the Nautilus, the Ammonite is a long-held symbol of growth, expansion, renewal, and of order amidst chaos due to its precise spiral shape.
It is said that the spiral draws in negative energy, filters it through the agatized chambers, and releases positive energy in its place.

Photography

Although we always strive to provide clear, accurate images of our crystals and other products, we photograph under professional lighting, which is meant to mimic sunlight. If you get your crystal and think it looks a little different under low or artificial light, try checking it out again in sunlight!

Our crystals are one-of-a-kind art, created by nature.

No two pieces are the same, and there is no such thing as "perfection" in nature.

When it comes to our hand-carved items, remember that artists work with and around imperfections, druzy pockets, and other natural variations to bring each carving out of a piece of natural stone.

We consider these imperfections to be one of the most wonderful parts of crystal collecting, and we invite you to embrace each carving's uniqueness!

We will always try to portray each piece honestly, so be sure to look closely at our images and videos to ensure you know what to expect.
