Genuine Polished Orthoceras Ammonite Bookend (10 lbs)
One of a kind hand-carved Orthoceras bookends. The orthoceras mollusk lived in abundance during the Paleozoic Era 250 to 750 million years ago. Orthoceras is a member of the class Cephalopoda and is closely related to the extinct giant Cephalopod and present-day chambered nautilus. Orthoceras ("straight horn") is slender with elongated shells with the middle of the body chamber transversely constricted, and a subcentral orthochoanitic siphuncle. The surfaces are polished with a glassy finish.
The image is indicative of the style only. Being a natural product, items will be not exactly the same - the actual fossils, patterns and coloring will vary.
