*each stone is unique - one each of a kind

Imagine prehistoric times; plant and ocean life are thriving. Set to the Dhar region of central India where the Tethys sea is home to a vast assortment of marine mammals and mollusks that are flourishing; among them is a Gemshell treasure waiting to be unearthed 100 million years later. But what is it exactly that makes these Spiralite Gemshells™ such a unique and exciting find? A combination of drusy formations and rare chirality.

Chirality refers to the handedness of a shells spiral; less than ten percent of the world’s shells have grown as a left-handed, or sinistral, coil. The uniqueness of coiling in a shell offers the greatest influence of value for fossil and shell collectors alike. This spiral direction detail alone would make these shells an exclusive and exciting material, but these treasures can hold yet another rare beauty in ocean fossils – Drusy! As these gastropod shells fossilized and the natural shell was replaced by chalcedony, just five percent (considered AAA quality) also created full formations of tiny crystal structures called drusy. These drusy structures create a dramatic sparkle inside the shell structure unlike any other fossil. The natural hues of these Gemshells can range between cream, tan, buttery yellow and even lavender grey.
