3.4" Tall, Miocene Fossil Gastropod Cluster - France
These are fossil gastropods collected near Bordeaux, France. They are Early Miocene in age which makes them approximately 16-20 million years old. The sandstone has been meticulously prepared to expose these shells. Multiple species are represented in each cluster which make each cluster unique and truly one-of-a-kind. The members of this collection are a buccinidae (welk) and a Conidae (cone snail). The largest shell is a welk. A second welk was attached to the side of this specimen but only a cast of the shell remains.
