Orthoceras Specimen from Morocco, metal Stand Included
Orthoceras fossils are often found typically found in a black limestone matrix, with the soft tissues of the ancient animal actually replaced with white calcite. However, what makes this piece unique, and not seen very often, is that it is in a brown matrix!
When the fossil elements are polished, as these have been by artisans in Morocco, they can look quite striking.
A great addition to anyone's home with or without a rock collection.
