Polished Orthoceras Singles

Regular price $15.00

Item: Orthoceras Singles
Age: Devonian (400 myo)
Size: 4.5-6.5"
Location: Morocco
Notes:  These versatile fossil squid specimens hold all the intrigue of the larger specimens but in a palm sized example. Each piece highlights the well preserved detail of the living chambers as well as the siphuncle, the center running tube that held water and air and was used to control movement and buoyancy. Great for paper weights, desk décor, children's collections...they're even made into jewelry, modern arrowheads, knife handles, and envelope openers!
