Turritella Agate

Turritella Agate is a brown form of Agate that is thickly studded with tiny, fossilised sea shells.
It is reputed to bring precious gifts to you unexpectedly and cause wealthy and powerful people to look on you favourably.

Some 40-60 million years ago, an ancient saltwater sea covered what is now Wyoming.
A snail of the Turritella species lived in its shallow waters.
The shell of this snail is a small, long, tapering spire with numerous whorls.
Today, fossil remains of the Turritella shell are found on the edges of Delaney Rim in south central Wyoming.
The shell material has been completely replaced by agate and chalcedony.
Agate and chalcedony are names given to a microscopically crystallized variety of quartz – the main component of which is silica.
The Turritella agate may be tumbled and polished for weeks to give it a slick and shiny surface.
Origin: Wyoming
