Orthoceras Displays

 

Orthoceras Display Fossils

Beautifully polished Natural Orthoceras (a straight Nautiloid species and related to the ammonites) on its original Devonian (roughly these lived around 350 MYa) Matrix and from Morocco, North Africa, very high up in the mountains.     You can see that the creatures on these display pieces are all relatively facing the same way most often aligned straight or at right angles.  Well this is because when these creatures died, usually in great numbers during times of freak mudslides or volcanic eruptions that affected the sea bed, the current of the flow of the seas arranged them into whole mass extinctions and fossilized like you see.  Then the sediment over time hardened and incased them into the limestone chambers that have held them for some many millions of years.

All Prices include Postage & Packing to UK (International buyers please note that because these are so heavy they are liable for heavy shipping costs and the risk of damage - if you email me I will be more than happy to tell you a stockist near you in your country. 

Orthoceras Plaques

These are all natural displays, the Orthoceras are polished up to a high lustre.  The rock matrix often has little tiny holes and tiny iron nodules which look rusty, this is totally normal and part of the devonian limestone formation.   Orthoceras was a widespread Cephalopod across the Devonian seas and are important marker fossils for geologists.
