Add a touch of elegance to your collection with these mesmerizing Gemshells from Central India!
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.
