One fReestanding orthoceras tower specimen from Morocco.
As seen in these pictures, orthoceras fossils are often found in a black limestone matrix, with the soft tissues of the ancient squid-like animal replaced with calcite.
The ones pictured are examples of the specimen you will receive. Upon receiving your order, we will select a specimen of similar size as those seen in these photos.
These pieces stand approximately 7-9" tall, 2-3” wide and weigh approx 2-3 lbs (exact sizes will vary. As they get longer in one dimension, they will be smaller in another).
