Bracelet with turitella or fossil agate
The fossil agate is part of the quartz family and shows black/gray colors with some brown and white spots. It also has some fossil shell inclusions imprisoned in the silica.
Its name comes from the shell and snail family, from the name turitella. However, there is a difference made by some experts. They say it cannot be part of this family because this agate appeared in old dried lakes whereas the turitella is an animal from the ocean. At the present time, this freshwater fossil snail has not really been identified for sure.
It symbolizes richness. It is then common to see it in one’s purse or in the cashier to attract money.
Mines: the USA, Brazil, India, Madagascar and Uruguay
