Orthoceras in Silver Setting
1000mm x 20mm
Orthoceras was an ancient mollusk that lived more than 400 million years ago. The name means straight horn, referring to the characteristic long, straight, conical shell. The preserved shell is all that remains of this ancestor of our modern-day squid.
The markings on this fossil are superb with the entire skeleton captured within the stone. It can be worn on any of our necklaces, but looks fantastic when worn on a Belcher Chain or our simple black cord.
