Ammonites are an extinct group of marine animals and are the most widely known fossil; they are cephalopods and first appeared in the seas 415 million years ago.
The Navajo and Indians of the North American Plains carried ammonites in their medicine bags for health and good hunting. They called the ammonites buffalo stones because of their resemblance to the North American bison.
