Copper Wire Wrapped Turritella Pendant
This is a beautiful, copper, wire wrapped pendant made from polished rock containing agatized gastropod (snail) fossils. These fossils are Eocene in age or approximately 45-50 million years old. While they are typically 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.
