Coprolite Properties / Meaning ~

Fossils 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 instil quality and excellence in your environment.

The name is derived from the Greek words kopros, meaning ‘dung’ and lithos, meaning ‘stone’. Coprolites are fossilised animal dung, their original composition has been replaced by mineral deposits, often silicates and calcium carbonates. They can be identified by their often spiral shaped structure, coprolites have been found from the Cambrian period to recent times and can be found all over the world.

Fossils (from Latin fossus, literally ”having been dug up”) are the mineralized or otherwise preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms. 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.
