Ammonites are the fossilized remains of ancient sea creatures. A type of cephalopod mollusk, they are found around the world. Much of what we know or presume about ammonites comes from the study of their only known living relative, the nautilus. Most everyone has seen the pearly shell of a Nautilus and can therefore picture what an ammonite was, even though they probably became extinct about the same time as the dinosaurs. Over time, ammonite fossils were pushed up to the surface or washed out into rivers. These fossils have fascinated people throughout the ages. There is various lore surrounding ammonite fossils, but all seem to attribute health, prosperity, and good luck to the fossils. The fossil is named for the Egyptian god Ammon, because their shape resembles his ram horns. Ammonite was prized by the ancient Egyptian and Roman societies and was considered to have magical and holy powers.The natural properties and composition of mined gemstones define the unique beauty of each piece.
