Fossils are a representation of the former physicality of what was, so it holds a magnetic or spiritual connection to the former animal or plant organism. It helps us to access the ancient and deeper wisdoms that we hold. The more crystaline or calcified versions also connect us through to more ascended knowledge. Because fossils are a combination of the energy of the previous creature and the material into which they were transformed, they are very grounding. They allow one to be observant and learn of things in one's physical world. It helps one to be receptive and draw example and inference from all while still being present.
