Ammonite and Belemnite Large Circular Container
This beautiful hand-carved ammonite and belemnite circular container – perfect for storing precious items like jewelry – 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 decor makes for the perfect gift to add aesthetic value and history to any home or office. As this is a natural item, it may vary slightly in appearance from the one depicted. Weight and dimensions are approximate.
