The ancient Romans believed a Pyritized ammonite under your pillow would bring prophetic dreams! Ammonite first appeared in the late Silurian to early Devonian Periods (~400 million years ago) in marine environments, and their demise coincided with the extinction event that closed the Cretaceous Period. Imagine owning a natural Ammonite Fossil which has been encased in Earth`s ancient sea for 400 million years.
