SKULLS: Life is transitory…….
In the American - European cultures skulls mostly represent Poison, Pirates, death, and the darkness….but in many others they are viewed quite differently. Some ancient societies believed to have had the opposite association, where objects like crystal skulls represent "life": the honoring of humanity in the flesh and the embodiment of consciousness.
Nowadays in numerous cultures skulls symbolize immortality, knowledge, enlightenment, protection, strength, power, fearlessness, wisdom and guidance, overcoming death, or surviving through a difficult time.
These ammonites are a nice size for a natural jewelry pendant, and can be wire wrapped, bezel set,drilled or wrapped in Brass Filigree embellishments as are on my site. They could also be incorporated into mixed media art or they just make a beautiful specimen for the avid fossil collector and healing stones connoisseur.

Jurassic & Cretaceous Fossil Specimens from 65-240 million years ago.
Ammonites were free-swimming, predatory mollusks that resembled squid, and lived in the ancient oceans, around the same time that the dinosaurs walked the Earth. They disappeared during the same extinction event.
Their name originates from the shells likeness to spiraled rams horns which sat atop the head of the Egyptian god Ammon.
The fossils, formed when the remains of the animal, became buried in sediment for millions of years and later solidified into rock.
The process called Permineralization is a type of fossilization in which mineral deposits form crystalline internal casts of organisms.
Carried by water, these minerals fill the spaces within the pores of organic tissue and crystals begin to form in the porous cell walls. This process continues on the inner surface of the walls until the central cavity of the cell, the lumen, is completely filled. The cell walls themselves remain intact surrounding the crystals.
A wonderful example of the Fibonacci Sequence or Golden Ratio......
