Dadhivāmana (दधिवामन) refers to one of the many varieties of the Śālagrāma (ammonite fossil stones).—The Dadhivāmana is very small in size; dark-blue in colour; two cakras. Śālagrāma stones are very ancient geological specimens, rendered rounded and smooth by water-currents in a great length of time. They (eg., Dadhi-vāmana stones) are distinguished by the ammonite (śālā, described as “vajra-kīṭa”, “adamantine worms”) which having entered into them for residence, are fossilized in course of time, leaving discus-like marks inside the stone.(Source): archive.org: Pratima Kosa Encyclopedia of Indian Iconography - Vol 6
