This is a nice little Orthoceras fossil.    Orthoceras were prehistoric squid that lived during the Ordovician-Triassic time periods, 488-200 million years ago!   The pictures show an example of the size and quality of fossil you will receive if you purchase this item.   THE FOSSIL PICTURED IS NOT THE ACTUAL ONE YOU WILL RECEIVE, BUT SIMILAR.      This item measures about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in length.  These are great for wire wrapping or making other types of jewelry.  Orthoceras were cephalopods meaning that their head and tail protruded from the same opening of the shell.  They had a cone shaped shell; they may have reached 60 feet in length by building larger chambers onto their shell.  This type of fossil is found in Morocco, North Africa. 

We have a variety of Orthoceras fossils in our store so be sure to check out our other listings!
