we have a beautiful handcarved Orthoceras Fossil Sculpture plate that is from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, North Africa.

It has polished Orthocerus fossils with a textured matrix background. T are over 7 individuals with some being the most well defined individual fossils I have seen with the largest one measuring a large 3.75" long! These are squid like animals with hard shells that lived in the Silurian age, over 400 million years ago, way before the dinosaurs.

This would be a wonderful addition to your specimen collection or it will make a unique and stunning decorator piece. T is a beautiful stand included with this so it will display nicely.

It measures a nice 11" x 8.25" at its biggest and weighs about 6 pounds! This is a contoured piece, not flat!
