Ammonite and Belemnite Square Box // Ver. 1

$39

Morocco

This beautiful hand-carved ammonite and belemnite square jewelry box 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 décor makes for the perfect gift to add aesthetic value and history to any home or office. As this is a natural item, it may differ slightly in appearance from the photos and dimensions and weight are approximate.

Dimensions: L 2.5" x W 2.5" x H 1.5", Weight: 239 grams
