Orthoceras tower specimen from Morocco, with a flat bottom so it will stand on its own.

NOTE: one of the tops of the fossils has been broken and glued back on. This defect is included in the price.

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 one pictured is exactly the specimen you will receive. It is about 8” tall and weighs just over 3 lbs.
