Ammonite and Belemnite Heart Dish
This beautiful hand-carved ammonite and belemnite dish is from the Atlas Mountains in South Morocco. Ammonites and belemnites are extinct species of Orthoceras, an ancient relative to the modern-day cephalopod – otherwise known as squids or nautilus. Orthoceras fossilize over a limestone bed and have an estimated age of about 370 million years, hailing from the Devonian period. This ancient specimen turned modern home décor makes for the perfect gift to add aesthetic value and history to any home or office. Dimensions and weight are approximate, as this is a natural item.
