History & Origins

This form of agate is found in the Green River formation of Wyoming. Formed around 50 million when the Rocky Mountains were still growing, by rain and terrain merging into this beautiful brown agate.

Upon first discovery, the snails of this stone were thought to be in the Turritella genus. This is incorrect because the fossils are actually from a freshwater snail, not saltwater like Turritella snails. So the correct genus is Elimia tenera, a member of the Pleuroceridae family.
