A gorgeous, turritella fossil stone was combined with hand fabricated sterling silver to create this striking necklace. 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 stone is no exception. It exhibits a wonderful array of fossils and shells that have been embedded in an agate stone base – compliments of Mother Nature. It has earthy hues of brown, tan, ivory and soft gray.

I created a sterling silver bail to surround the stone and then wrapped it securely with sterling silver wire. The metal was hammered for an earthy, organic texture - and then given a soft charcoal patina to bring out the rich detail.

MEASUREMENTS: The pendant measures 2-3/4" in length and 1-1/8" in width (at widest point).

► CHAIN OPTIONS: This pendant may be purchased WITH OR WITHOUT the chain.

If you select the "With Sterling Chain" option, it will come on the chain featured in the photos - which is a 16" oxidized solid sterling silver rope chain with lobster claw closure.
