Item details

Handmade item


Gemstone, Glass, Pearl & shell, Silver


Necklace length: 20 1/2 Inches; Pendant height: 1 1/4 Inches; Pendant width: 2 Inches

This piece of Turritella agate is loaded with little fossil shells in beautiful dark to medium browns, and beiges. This Turritella agate comes from the Green River Formation of Wyoming. It is named with the marine Turritella genus decades ago, but is in fact a land-locked shell fossil formed 50 million years ago in the Eocene epoch. The centerpiece pendant has a drop of 1 1/2 inches by 1 3/4 inches wide. The total necklace length is 20 1/2 inches. I used lots of sterling silver spacers, and small and large sterling coiled shells, along with a sterling silver hook and loop clasp. I included more of the incredible Turritella, snail-shaped Czech glass beads and Czech ammonite-shaped beads, as well as stromatolite, which is the oldest stuff on earth--fossil mud!! Other contrasting and coordinating beads include freshwater pearls, and Czech and China glass. There are earrings available, and include the Turritella, sterling, and crystal glass, at 7/8 inches long. This piece would be great for your geologist, paleontologist, or ocean lover!
