Fossilized Druzy Shell Ethiopian Opals Prehnite Necklace


Mishell Necklace - A minty green “sugar-filled” natural fossilized druzy seashell has been combined with a hand-linked chain of fiery Ethiopian opals and intercepted with beautiful step-cut prehnite nuggets to create this unique collector’s necklace. Although the skeletal chambers of the shell glisten and sparkle with the micro crystal minerals that created this druzy phenomena - the backside of the shell is silky smooth - as if it was gently polished by the ocean. Although today, we think of the Sahara Desert as a desolate and dry place - millions of years ago it was covered in water and was the bottom of an ocean. The remnants of this fact are found in areas of the desert that are covered in little shells, ammonites and fossils. Leaving the dangerous task of collecting these shells to someone else - I was awestruck when I found a resource that had a vast selection of fossilized druzy shells from a private collection - all found in the dusty and dry sea bed that we now call the Sahara Desert. Minerals deposited in the remnants of shells have naturally created these one-of-a-kind geologic wonders - which continue to be a curiosity - even today. 27.5 inches long / 3.25 inch pendant drop X .94 inches wide.
