Description

Description: 5 orthoceras on an 12" fossil plate.

Orthoceras means straight horn. They were marine animals that lived about 400 million years ago. Commonly found in limestone. They are an ancestor to the squid. In order to swim they filled their chambers, also called septas, with air. Then release jets of water to propel themselves through the water. Not only did they swim but they also crawled along the ocean floor. Their shells fell to the ocean floor when they died. After years of sediment covering them they transformed into stone.

Weight (lbs): 6 # 2.8 oz

Weight (kg): 2.8 kg

Size (inches): 10.3" x 7.0"

Size (mm): 261 mm x 177 mm

Mine location: Morocco

Item Number: E4570

Retail value: $400

Additional policies

Photography - I photograph outside in full sun for true color rendition. Occasionally clouds come over that make the color less than it really is. On rare occasions I supplement with a flash to highlight details. Lighting minerals correctly will bring out their best color. Halogen works the best. The hand or finger in the photo is to give you a comparison of size. We realize it is hard to tell the size of an mineral by the picture alone.

Computer monitors - We try very hard for accurate color rendition. However images look different in color depending on the computer monitor. I have even moved the laptop from living room (editing pictures) to office to upload and the glare from the windows changes the colors. If you are unhappy with the item, you may of course return it within 14 days for a courteous full refund.

Measurements - All are measured from the tip to across. This is the industry standard. Then we measured across in a X formation.
