Here we have some really nice orthoceras specimens in a limestone matrix.
Orthoceras are a group of invertebrates from as many as 450 million years ago. These are kin to modern squid and octopus.
You will receive 1 specimen similar to those pictured well packaged for safe travels.
These measure 8-10″ in height and weigh between 3 & 4 lbs.
Fossils, in general have been used metaphysically for anxiety, stress, balance, and confidence. They can also promote a sense of pride and for business success. Healers have used these to increase telepathy and stimulate the mind. Either way, these are beautiful specimens and make a great conversation piece or a tool for your craft.
The fossils commonly known as orthoceras are extinct “straight” cephalopods that lived during the Upper Devonian period around 370 million years ago. Like other cephalopods they lived inside of their shell, had tentacles they could use to grab food and used jet propulsion, squirting water to move. The rock containing them is quarried from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco and frequently polished to make decorative items with the fossils visible on the polished surface.
