Orthoceras And Ammonite Plate -- Ver. 2


This is a beautiful natural plate from the Atlas Mountains of orthoceras and ammonite fossils. Orthoceras date to the lower Ordovician to Triassic ages (500 to 190 million years ago). Ammonites are perhaps the most widely known fossils, bearing a typically banded spiral formation shell. These squid-like creatures lived in the sea between 65-415 million years ago. The country of Morocco, located in northwest Africa, is rich with fossils such as ammonites, orthoceras, trilobites, and dinosaur teeth.

Within Morocco lies a portion of the Sahara Desert which was once an ocean, and it is there that many remains like these are discovered. Skilled artisans have taken great time and care to prepare these fossils to ornament your home.
