2.7" Polished Fossil Turritella Agate Sphere - Wyoming

This is a gorgeous sphere made from agatized gastropod (snail) fossils (Turritella Agate) from Wyoming. These fossils are Eocene in age or approximately 45-50 million years old. While they are commonly referred to as Turritella, these ones are technically of the species Elimia tenera. Elimia is a genus of freshwater snail while Turritella lived in salt water.

The sphere has been polished to a glossy finish with some dull spots here and there, and will be accompanied by the pictured display stand.
