5.1" Polished Fossil Turritella Agate Stand Up - Wyoming

This is a gorgeous stand-up made from agatized gastropod (snail) fossils (Turritella Agate) from Wyoming. These fossils are Eocene in age or approximately 5.15-50 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.

One side of this specimen has been polished to a glossy finish, while the remaining rock has been left rough. One edge has been cut flat for presentation and fossils have been exposed along the back side of this specimen, only adding to the beauty of this fossiliferous agate.
