Description

Orthoceras Fossil Sculpture size #1

These Orthocera sculptures are hand-made by chiseling the rock underneath to expose the Orthocera fossil. The fossils are then polished inside the matrix. These fossils are free standing and compliment any home or office decor.

Orthoceras are the ancestral cousins of modern squid and octopus living more than 400 million years ago. The word “Orthoceras” means “Straight Horn” referring to its shape.

All Orthoceras have chambers separated by walls called the siphuncle and the Septa. The siphuncle is the line running down the head to the tail. The septa is the short curved lines that run across or side to side.
