Turritella agate is a variety of Chalcedony with inclusions of fossilized snails. It has an earthly rich spectrom of browns and blacks and sources say that it is a stone of personal connection with one's past - ancestry, homeland, and the country from which those ancestors came. As a record keeper crystal, it may be used to gain access to the wisdom of past worlds and past life recall. This particular cabochon is wrapped cleanly in solid copper, and has just enough framing to accent the stone, without taking away from the complex beauty of the fossils. The pendant measures approximately 2 1/4 inches long and 1 1/8 inches wide at the widest point. The bail is generous enough to fit any chain or cord offered, so if you need one please remember to add to cart before checking out!
