Turritella Agate is one of those rare & interesting materials due to the visible appearance of fossilized animals crystallized in agate over 40 million years. All rock is old, but being able to see ancient life in every bead or pendant adds a dimension not common in all materials. It makes your jewelry an interesting conversation piece to point out the now extinct- E. Tenera- freshwater snail that lived in Wyoming (USA) during the Eocene Epoch (35-55 million years ago). You can?t say that about glass beads.The name Turritella comes from the Latin word turritus meaning "turreted" or "towered" and the diminutive suffix ?ella. The ancient life held within its form lends the power of wisdom and healing. Turritella is a genus of medium-sized sea snails with an operculum, marine gastropod mollusks in the family Turritellidae. They have tightly coiled shells, whose overall shape is basically that of an elongated cone.
