SP121 Orthoceras

$16.00

Here’s a new item, an exceptional Orthoceras sphere in a fossil marble matrix. This unique sphere has very good well defined Orthoceras as well as other fossils imbedded in the marble. It has a good polish and measures 2 1/4″. This material is from Morocco and is hand ground so is a little lumpy and a bit out of round.  A very cool sphere.

Description

Orthoceras is a genus of extinct Nautiloid Cephalopod. These fossils are common and have a global distribution which occur in any marine rock, especially Limestone. These are slender, elongated shells with the middle of the body chamber transversely constricted and a sub-central orthochoanitic siphuncle. The surface is ornamented by a network of fine lirae or fine lines/ridges.
