Gorgeous turritella fossil stones were combined with handmade sterling silver dangles to create these earthy earrings. Turritella is the name given for a type of fossil that consists of a concentration of small shells that have been embedded and fossilized for millions of years. This type of fossil is found only in the state of Wyoming, USA.

Millions of years ago, a part of Wyoming's Delaney Rim was covered by an ancient saltwater sea where this species of snails once lived. Each stone has its own amazing patterns - and this pair is no exception. They exhibit a wonderful array of fossils and shells that have been embedded in an agate stone base – compliments of Mother Nature. They have unique patterns in the earthy hues of brown, tan, ivory and soft gray.

The stones are accented with handmade sterling silver drops, which I textured to "echo" the organic matrix of the stones. The metal was given a soft charcoal patina to enhance the details; and signed on the back with my initials and sterling stamp.

MEASUREMENTS:
Total length: 2-1/2" from top of sterling silver ear wires and 7/8" at widest point.

NOTE: Please refer to measurements above. Photos are enlarged to show details.
