This lot includes thirteen (13) fossil shells selected from the larger collection shown. These shells originate from the Tamiami Formation in southern Florida. This formation is a rich deposit of late-Miocene to Pliocene marine fossils (approx. 2.5 to 12 million years old). Many of the represented species are extinct, but some are still extant. The shells include gastropods and bivalves of various types, including cones, conchs, whelks, turbans, drills, olives, murex, scallops, and more. Some of these have nice bluish or orange coloration from local mineral deposits, but most are white.
