Transformation
Orthoceras were Cephalopods, ancestors to modern-day squid and octopus. They are a long straight form of Ammonite fossil, mainly found and mined in Morocco. There, they are commonly found with round Ammonites called Goniatites. Their fossils can have an iridescent gem-like quality when polished, particularly those found in Madagascar. Orthoceras fossils are among the earliest recognizable animals. Even though they were among the earliest forms of life, this class of Nautiloid is considered one of the more intelligent forms of ocean life.
The Orthoceras ranged in size from one centimetre to over two metres in length. They could swim as well as crawl on the ocean floor. By filling the chambers in their shells with air they could float through the seas, propelling themselves by squirting jets of water.
The younger examples are around 110-million-year-old. Others are much older than that, with their main period from 443 million years up to 485-million-years ago. The oceans at the time in the Ordovician Period teemed with life. As they died, their shells accumulated upon the ocean floor, then were covered by sediments.
Orthoceras activates the Root Chakra by grounding you with the ancient energy of Earth. It can push you on a path of transformation, helping you shift from who you were to becoming who you want to be.
