Turritella (Elimia Tenera) Fossil - 34 to 56 MYA - Actual Authentic Fossil
From our Museum Field Kit(tm) collection, this Turitella Fossil, which has been reclassified by paleontologists as Elimia Tenera, is an extinct species of fresh water snails (gastropods). The confusion with theif identifcation is that they share a very similar shape to ocean born salt water Turritella. The Stone encasing the Elimia Fossils is Agate. The formation is from layers of sediment deposited in ancient lakes in Wyoming, Utah, Colorado and Montant. This is now part of the Rocky Mountains, the only place in the world they have been discovered. This species flourished 34 to 56 million years ago.
