This Orthoceras Fossil Mini-Plaque from Morocco makes the perfect small gift, particularly for kids and the beginning fossil collector.
Orthoceras are extinct cephalopods that lived in the ocean that once covered the Sahara Desert about 400 million years ago (during the Devonian Period). The fossilized structure is preserved in black marble and white calcite, and the small plate has been polished to highlight the sea creature's distinctive chamber walls.
The plaque you receive will measure from 1-1/2 to 2-1/2" long, 3/8 to 5/8" wide, and 3/16 to 3/8" thick, and will be similar in quality and appearance to those shown in the above photo.
