Clearance Lot: 1" to 3" Orthoceras Fossils - 400+ Pieces

This is a wholesale lot of over 400 Orthoceras fossil specimens from Morocco. They were prepped free of the rock they were found in. They range from 1" to 3" long". These fossils are in varying states of completeness.

These are perfect as gifts, for educational programs, or for resale.

The fossils commonly known as Orthoceras are extinct "straight" cephalopods that lived during the Upper Devonian period around 370 million years ago. Like other cephalopods, they lived inside of their shells, had tentacles they could use to grab food, and used jet propulsion, squirting water to move. The rock containing them is quarried from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco and frequently polished to reveal the fossils and make decorative items with them.

While Orthoceras is the common name for these cephalopods, there are actually several different genera, including Michelinoceras and Arionoceras, found in association. However, unless you are one of the world's leading experts on fossil cephalopods, you probably won't be able to tell them apart.
