Kraken Fossil Geeky Stone Necklace, Orthoceras Jewelry
I have polished this great Orthoceras fossil until it gleams, then drilled it and hung it from a simple adjustable leather thong. The fossil itself is only 2 x 0.5 inch (45 x 15 mm) and it is very lightweight. The cord is adjustable up to 24 inches long to easily slip over your head and I have finished the ends with carved bone beads.
This fossil is over 400 Million years old, and based on studies of modern cephalopod distributions, it is found in beds where post-mating die-offs are believed to have occurred, thus the large concentrations of fossils found in these beds.
Because this is so basic and organic, it can be for either a male or female, and would make a great birthday, anniversary, graduation or Christmas gift for a Science Major, Marine Biologist, Paleontology student, or just your run-of-the-mill Geek! It will also appeal to Sci-Fi fans and Steampunk dads due to it's connection to Captain Nemo, The Nautilus and the Kraken.
Keywords associated with these special fossils are: Transition, transformation, personal growth. They are associated with both the base and solar plexus chakras and are a wonderful tool to assist you in moving from the old to the new and to be receptive to the fresh, innovative forces that are available to you. Fossils can assist you in your quest for transition, transformation and personal growth, helping you to understand the process of change. They can help you instill quality and excellence in your environment.
In ancient times they were believed to be a gift from the stars and were revered by many cultures. Because of their age they have been used throughout the centuries as a talisman for protection and long life.
