One of the most fascinating facts about the fossil squid orthoceras is that it lived approximately 400 million years ago, during the Paleozoic era, and is one of the earliest known forms of cephalopods. These ancient creatures were named after their long, straight shell that resembled a cone (orthoceras means "straight horn" in Greek).
Its dimensions are: approximately 24cm tall and 7 cm wide. Because they are natural formations and no two are alike, please note that dimensions will slightly vary from item to item. We included our business card in one of the photographs to gauge its size.
