The 240 million year old ammonite fossils form a sacred geometrical shape called the "golden mean spiral," traveling both infinitely outward and infinitely inward. This spiral can be mathematically represented by the Fibonacci Sequence – the numerical foundation that depicts the underlying growth, movement, and evolution throughout all of nature. Plants unfurl, flowers bloom, and our galaxy spirals according to this sequence. The ammonites are fitted expertly into the center of each pine cone's mandala so as to blend the golden mean spirals of tree and shell into a single dynamic Fibonacci movement – evoking a sense of wonder and connectedness to our universe's greater intelligent design. In addition, Abalone has been masterfully inlaid into several of the ammonite's segments, offsetting the rich earth tones of the fossil with brilliant shimmering opal highlights.
In mystical folklore, abalone was used by medicine workers to stimulate psychic development and intuition. Abalone is purported to be especially useful for handling and calming the emotions, and can be beneficial in enabling one to work through a difficult emotional situation with more grace and ease. It is also associated with the first three chakras, facilitating greater rootedness and connection with nature.The Crushed Crystal pattern around the outside of this center stone has been carefully mixed with a powerful Phosphorescent powder, then inlaid into the pendant -- so it glows brightly in the dark! (The Center stone hasn't been altered from its original elegant form, and does not glow)
