Turritella Agate is the popular name used for a brown, translucent, fossiliferous Agate found in Wyoming. This material was incorrectly named decades ago when it was thought that the spiral-shaped gastropod (snail) fossils entombed within the stone were members of the Turritella genus. That was a mistake and instead, the fossils are of the freshwater snail, Elimia Tenera, a member of the Pleuroceridae family.

Turritella Agate is deeply connected to Gaia. This is a stone of strength and protection. The ancient life held within this stone lends the power of wisdom and healing.
