    Very nice use of the turritella. Not sure what you’re going for, but it reminds me of sea turtles coming in to nest during the full moon.

    Nice pick! Love Turritella!

    You know I get these songs in my head every time you make a pick??!!?? Lucky for me you make more than one a day!

    Hmmmm…I’m not much into sea turtles (not that I have anything against them). WhenI saw the Turitella, I fell in love. First thought was SR-71′s “I’ be the Last Man on the Moon”. Then I ran with “Fly Me to the Moon”, but after adding the pyrite started humming Van Morrison…”It’s a marvelous night for a Moondance.” I just kinda like he way the colors and patterns dance off of one another. With me now?

    Thanks Lori…I guess I’m getting my ideas across ;) I hear the song in everything around me.

    I must have turtles on the brain today.
    We’re learning about sea animals in school at the moment (that would be my 1st graders are)

    Neat way to see the world! I just get them stuck in my head! I had one a few nights ago that I picked around, I need to look it over before posting it.

    Thanks chickies. I’m pretty new to LB, but I love the fact that it let’s me allow my imagination to run W-I-L-D. I have a bad habit of taking things (especially myself) W-AAAAAAA-Y to seriously. Tis a fun place, this LB world.

    Did you know that there is another source for the Turritella Agete in china but it has the smaller non distinct fossils. This stuff is the good stuff from Wyoming. Much better. Warning, those are knots between the stones. Don’t try to pull them off the strand, the knots get stuck inside. Yeah, experisence. Now I have cabachons to wire wrap.

    Thanks for the heads up, Bonnie. Seems like everything comes from China these days :(
