Ammonites were hard shelled squid-like marine animals that existed from the Palaeozoic to the end of the Cretaceous era when they suddenly became extinct. They were abundant in all the oceans.

The name «ammonite» is derived from the ancient Egyptian god Ammon who considered them to be devine and is represented by the head of a ram with twisted spiral horns that are reminiscent of ammonites twisted shells. The Roman historian Pliny the Elder regarded ammonite as the holiest stone because it was said to evoke prophetic dreams.
