Orthoceras Specimen from Morocco, metal stand Included. This piece offers great definition of the fossils in the matrix with five of them clearly visible.
As seen in these pictures, Orthoceras fossils are often found in a black limestone matrix, with the soft tissues of the ancient animal actually replaced with white calcite.
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.
See the photos for the actual dimensions of this beautiful piece. It’s weight is almost 3 lbs!
