Spiralite is a shell that broke a bit and the organic shell material was replaced with minerals suspended in the sea. It is over 50 million years old, dating back to the Cretaceous Period. As it fossilized, it transformed from a shell into an agate gemstone. The sea no longer exists. It was actually a prehistoric sea called Tethys.
Over millions of years, that area that was the Tethys Sea is now a hill in central India. The Spiralite fossils are embedded in rock and have to be very gently extracted by hand.
This Spiralite shell is filled with a quartz druzy lining its interior.
The four prong setting and bail are sterling silver.
This pendant is on the heavy side and needs a study chain, such as a snake chain as shown in the photos. From the top of the bail to the bottom of the shell, the pendant measures 2 inches long by 3/4 inch wide.
