This necklace was made as a collaboration with my friend Stephanie. She is an avid fossil collector and has a huge array of amazing fossilized teeth and shells that she has found over the years.
She approached me to make her some custom necklaces from several of her treasures and was kind enough to send me some truly stunning specimens to mold and cast in solid sterling silver.
This amazing internal Turritella, gastropod fossil is cast in solid sterling, oxidized and hung on a 20" (51 cm) . The internal gastropod measures roughly 46mm high, 13 mm wide & deep (at widest part). You can also purchase the Sterling Silver Turritella on it's own without the box chain (see chain options).
I find these spiraling inner casts of millions of years old gastropods to be fascinating and beautiful. Apparently, in the areas where these types of fossils are found, the cliff matrix is harder than the gastropod shells....so the shells erode and internal molds are left behind.
Please contact me if you would like one made with a different length chain or different combo of finishes.
