The ammonite mollusk was a shelled cephalopod. The extinction of ammonites coincided with the extinction of dinosaurs. Egyptians named this fossil after their God, Ammon. Named after its similar shape to a ram’s horns, it was prized by Egyptian and Roman societies because it was seen as a deity symbol. Fossils represent time, eternity and evolution. In general, they are used as protective objects. Fossils of all kinds are worn as amulets to increase life span, due to their lineage.
