The traveler never went anywhere without her useful sundial compass which she wore on a chain with the Orthoceras fossil that she picked up in Morocco. Now you can own a necklace just like the fossil hunter's, and maybe embark on an adventure of your own.

The 1-3/4" (34mm) x 3/4" (20mm) sundial and compass is a beautiful reproduction of one originally made in 1885. The front of the case is engraved with "Dollond London Pocket Compass 1885" On the back is engraved a detailed set of instructions for using the sundial and compass. The front removes to reveal the folding sundial with the compass underneath. Inside the lid a clock is laid out, with a rotating dial over it that provides the time for various cities around the world. I hung the sundial from a filigree piece of brass.

The Orthoceras fossil is genuine and is probably about 65 million years old.

These hang on a heavy antiqued brass plated steel chain that closes with a lobster clasp on one end and an extender chain with a filigree charm on the other. The extender chain lets one wear this from 24" - 28" (61cm - 71cm) long.

***Please note that I am using my stock photos for this necklace, which means that the fossil will be slightly different for each necklace.*** Let me know if you'd like for me to send you pictures of the actual Orthoceras fossil that you will receive.

Please be sure to measure on yourself to see where this will fall. (A piece of string cut to length works well for this purpose.) This is a long necklace that will fall below the bust line on most women and mid chest on most men. I will adjust the chain length for no additional charge; just let me know that it should be done.
