Turritella Agate Beads

The name turritella comes from the Latin word turritus, which means turreted or towered. Turritella agate is one of those rare and interesting materials, due to the visible appearance of fossilized animals that have crystallized into 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 what is now the state of Wyoming during the Eocene Epoch 35-55 million years ago. The ancient life held within its form lends the power of wisdom and healing.
