Between 65 million and 250 million years ago, the ammonites ruled the seas. These mollusks, which belonged to the class of cephalopods, were very abundant the world over, until they took their leave and slipped into extinction at the end of the Cretaceous period along with the dinosaurs. During their reign, however, they showed an amazing ability to adapt and evolve to maintain their worldly presence. Indeed, even after death and extinction, they have managed to leave their mark in the form of one of the world’s most prevalent and well-preserved varieties of fossil. Ammonites carry in them a connection to the past and a strong sense of stability in the present. It is said that working with them may help to reveal past life and karmic issues whilst fostering the stability and calmness to work through those issues.
