6.0" Oval Shaped Fossil Goniatite Dish - Morocco
This is a 6.0" oval shaped dish from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. It is made out of polished rock containing 400 million year old fossils of Goniatites (a type of Ammonite). This is a hand crafted unique specimen.
Goniatites possessed a shell which was divided internally into chambers filled with gas for buoyancy. An open chamber at the front of the shell provided living space for the animal. The general morphology and habit of goniatites was probably similar to that of their later relatives the ammonites, being free swimming and possessing a head with two well developed eyes and arms.
