Experts within the feng shui circle have recognized the significant properties of the ammolite gemstone in their practice. This gemstone promotes the flow of Qi (pronounced chi) throughout the body, enhancing well-being and reducing the bodys toxicity. Ammolites rich colours stimulate creativity, energy, wisdom, intellect and wealth. Not only does it bring balance to a persons body, but also to a persons surroundings. When the stone is placed in the home, it promotes a happy family, and when it is placed in the office, it promotes good business dealings. In essence, anyone who finds or possesses ammolite is entitled to wondrous prosperity and fortune.
Ammolite is derived from the ammonite fossil. Just the right combination of heat and pressure created this geological phenomenon. It has been buried for the past 71 million years absorbing a substantial amount of both the Earths and the universes positive cosmic energy. It radiates this energy in every colour of the visible spectrum. Many feng shui experts believe that all matter is energy or qi. One form of this qi is light energy. Our brain interprets light energy as colour, so these colours are specific wavelengths of energy that can be used to balance our qi.
Particularly important are the many colours of ammolite. The multiple layers of colour inside the stone are what creates the sparkling radiance. By examining the stone, one will see the seeds of seven distinct colours: ruby crimson, fiery orange, amber yellow, emerald green, jade, azure and mauve. Hence, some feng shui masters have named it the Seven Colour Prosperity Stone. Each colour represents a different meaning. For example, crimson stimulates growth and energy; orange generates creativity, and increased libido; green improves wisdom, intellect and promotes entreprenerialship; yellow improves wealth; and blue promotes peace and health.
Shells have been a symbol of good luck and prosperity in the Far East for decades. They are a symbol of abundance and are believed to attract and store wealth and prosperity. They also enhance clarity and promote cooperation along with encouraging wisdom in decision making.
Only our Canadian ammonites combine the excellent properties of the ammolite gemstone and the good fortune of the shell together in one beautiful and very special fossil. Along with this, many feng shui masters believe that ammonites contain the absorbed knowledge of the universe. The ammonites spiral pattern in the center of the fossil mimics the path that the universes forces must follow in space. Stored in the inner whorls of the animal, plasmic energy radiates out in this centrifugal motion for the benefit of those in the vicinity. This cosmic energy will enhance health, wealth and enlightenment.
