Description: The name Turritella comes from the Latin word turritus meaning "turreted" or "towered" and the diminutive suffix -ella. Turritella is a genus of medium-sized sea-snails with an operculum, marine gastropod mollusks which is part of the Turritellidae family.
These free form twisty fossils remain on a partial matrix and reach up nicely to the sky. These Turittela Fossils' spirals have loosened during their fossilization. Which causes their appearance to differ from those of other fossilized specimens.
These unique Turittela Fossils make a wonderful addition to any fossil lover's collection
