This unique standing decorator piece features both orthoceras and ammonite fossils set into an abstract shape. The fossils are polished to show off their unique pattern. These make excellent conversation pieces in the home and are welcomed as gifts by both men and women.
The orthoceras fossil is widespread in North America and also found in Morocco. These are the most common of the cephalopods which lived between 200 to 450 million years ago.
Ammonite, which means coiled horn, was an air breathing invertebrate. It looked like an ancestor of the squid except its body was protected by a coiled, chambered shell. Ammonites flourished throughout the Mesozoic Era - about 250 million years ago. Considered to be a protective stone that provides stability and structure.
No two pieces are alike. Each one will slightly vary in size, shape and colour.
