Product Description

Natural Orthoceras Morocco Fossil Squid Polished Rock

This is a nice  natural Orthoceras fossil box for jewlery or whatever! It is 7 inches long by 5 inches wide and 2.33 inches thick. The sides are almost 1/2 inch thick, the lid a little thinner and fitted. The inside and bottom are not polished. It weighs almost 4 lbs.

This Orthoceras (an ancient cousin to the Squid) lived in the Devonian Period about 450 million years ago and the fossil was found south of the Atlas Mountains in southern Morocco, at the northern fringe of the Sahara Desert.

These very primitive members of the Phylum Cephalopoda are ancestral cousins of the modern squid or octopus. The word Orthoceras means "straight horn" and refers to its shape. All Orthoceras have chambers separated by walls called Septa. They also have a tube that runs down the center of the shell called a siphuncle. It is believed that this tube was used to carry gas into the chambers to control buoyancy of the shell.

Metaphysical Properties: Fossils can help increase accomplishments in the area of business and add excellence to one's environment. They also aid one in being open to change and new ideas.
