These remarkable and extremely uncommon left spiraling shells tread the boundary between fossil and crystals, completely agatized and replaced by stunning druzy quartz, they are found on a hill in Central India which was one under the Pre Historic sea called Tethys.
These Gemshells are extracted one by one, very carefully, by hand from a hard rocky matrix. Less than 5% of all geodes extracted have any visible druzy, and these are completely covered.
In Hindu, Buddhist and Tibetan cultures, left spiraling shells have been associated with great metaphysical properties and these shells represent unparalleled beauty and rarity.
In ancient Sanskrit, these shells were called “Dakshinavarti” and were associated with Vishnu, the Preserver, from the Holy trinity of Hinduism.
I sourced these spectacular Gemshells directly from the source and am so excited to carry this material. If you know me at all, you know I love shells just as much as I love crystals and have a large collection of shells from all over the world! So excited to add these to my collection, and hope you all enjoy these as much as I do!
