Item details

Montana Turritella Agate

These are around 50 MYO fossils of the freshwater snail, Elimia tenera, a member of the Pleuroteridae family. The snails were so prolific that entire layers of sediment were composed almost entirely of their shells.

After these layers were buried, groundwater moved through the sediments. Small amounts of microcrystalline silica that were dissolved in the groundwater began to precipitate, possibly in the form of a gel, within the cavities of the snail shells and the empty spaces between them. Over time, the entire mass of fossils was silicified, forming the brown fossiliferous agate (also known as chalcedony) that we know today as Turritella agate.
