About the stones
Ammonites are probably the most well-known fossil and lived in the seas between 240-65 million years ago, when they became extinct along with the dinosaurs. The name ammonite originates from the Greek Ram-horned god called Ammon. Ammonites are believed to have lived in shallow warm waters and moved by jet propulsion.
When ammonites where first discovered they were thought to be snakes that had been turned into stone with their heads cut off. In order to perpetuate the legend, local collectors and dealers in fossils frequently carved heads on them. Used as charms, ammonites were thought to be a protection against serpents, and a cure for baldness and infertility.
Garnet is the Birthstone for January and the horoscope stone for Scorpio.
The word ‘garnet’ is derived from the Latin “granatum” which means seed, and is called so because of the gemstone’s resemblance to the red seeds of the pomegranate.
Garnet has had a place in history for centuries as a gemstone, talisman or sacred stone. It is so durable, remnants of garnet jewellery can be found as far back as the Bronze Age.
Garnet is known as the stone of commitment. It inspires love and devotion, balances the sex drive and alleviates emotional disharmony. It is said to be a useful stone to have in a crisis as it fortifies and activates survival instinct, bringing courage and hope. Square-cut garnets are said to bring success to business matters. Garnets are also known to symbolise deep and lasting friendship.
