Honored as a sacred traditional talisman among the indigenous peoples of Canada from which it hails, Ammolite is the crystalized backing of an ammonite fossil that has been compressed under immense tectonic pressure within the earth for millions of years. During this time, the fossil undergoes a unique (and as yet unexplained) transformation, emerging with the breath-taking iridescent coloration they are so prized for today. Feng Shui practitioners consider Ammolite (known as "The Seven Color Prosperity Stone" in Chinese) to have absorbed the knowledge of the universe during its long slumber in the earth, bringing about enhanced wisdom, increased wealth, and and improved flow of chi.
This Pinecone has been imprinted with the 64 Star Tetrahedron, cast in 24k Gold. Envisioned as a 3-dimensional model of the I Ching, an ancient set of oracular Chinese Hexagrams, this emblem symbolizes the Creator, or the Great Void – the fundamental pattern that creates all matter.
