New Arrival ! 18 Pieces Fossilized Spiralite Quartz Shells - Lot # 115
During the Cretaceous Period, 100-50 million years ago India was submerged under the prehistoric Tethys Ocean. Within this marine environment lived rare left-hand coiled gastropods that have been rediscovered in the form of fossilized shells.
These fascinating fossils are composed of chalcedony Quartz and are often internally encrusted with druzy quartz. Since these rare fossils are found embedded in hard rock matrix, they are hammered, chiseled and carefully cleaned by hand.
