Spiralite gemshells are estimated to be over 5 million years old. Each of
these shell/geodes is the unusual left-hand coiling kind which is a rarity in
the domain of shells. Left-hand turning shells are known as sinistra shells.
Completely agatized and replaced by stunning quartz druzy in a myriad of
colors and crystal types making each one a unique and desirable gem that
treads the boundary between fossil and crystal.
Found on a hillside in Central India which was once under the prehistoric
sea called Tethys, these geodes are found embedded in an extremely hard
rocky matrix and each one has to be carefully extracted by hand. Less than
5% of all geodes extracted have any usable druzy formations.
Historically left-hand coiling shells have been associated with great
metaphysical powers in the Hindu, Buddhist, and Tibetan cultures. In
ancient Sanskrit, these shells were called “Dakshinavarti” and were
associated with Vishnu, the preserver from the Holy Trinity of Hinduism.
Many other metaphysical powers are ascribed to these but above all these
shells represent one of the finest and most beautiful creations of Mother
Nature with unparalleled druzy beauty and rarity.
Ethically mined and handcrafted with age-old lapidary methods.
Because the coiled shells of gastropods are asymmetrical, they possess a
quality called chirality, the “handedness” of an asymmetrical structure.
Over 90% of gastropod species have dextral (right-handed) shells in their
coiling. A small minority of species and genera are almost always sinistral
