Self-standing Marine Orthoceras and Ammonite
Decorator Accent Piece - 200+ Million Years
- Item # 334946
- Qty Available 3
An excellent decorative accent, this piece features both Orthoceras and Ammonite fossils set into a complimentary shaped plate. The fossils and plates are polished to show off their unique color pallet. 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.
