The ammonites have been a subset of the head-flowers - there may have been about 30,000 to 40,000 species. The size of the animals was usually in the range of 0,39 to 11,81 inch (1 to 30 cm).
There were also exceptions, for example, in 1895, for example, in a quarry near Seppenrode (southern part of Westphalia / Germany), a 70,87 inch (180 cm) large ammonite was found.
Ammonites first lived about 570 million years ago in the Lower Devonian until the Cretaceous, about 70 million years ago, then died together with the dinosaurs.
The ammonites were assigned a mystical role in various cultures of the Old and New Worlds. In our German-speaking culture circle ammonites were put into the milking bucket for the promotion of the milk production, or they were installed in the roof ridge for the protection against lightning stroke. As luck and protection, ammonites were also attached or walled in through entrance doors.
Water is an element of life. Ammonites buried in wells also suggest that the fossilized fossil should be protected from harmful effects and the source should be prevented from drying up.
Ammonite is also called snake stone. He is still used today as a healing stone.
