Pack of (2) or (5) Orthoceras Eggs

Approx: 2 3/8″H

Comes with an Orthoceras Information Card


Orthoceras are the fossilized remains of an extinct marine animal. These fossils are then cut and polished into the egg shape. The fossils commonly known as orthoceras are extinct "straight-shelled" cephalopods.

Found in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, Orthoceras are an extinct Nautiloid cephalopod that lived from the Ordovician Period to the Triassic Period (500 – 200 million years ago).

Each egg is unique & different-with a variety of different fossilized orthoceras shells. Found in a black matrix, the white fossils contrast nicely. Photos are examples of the eggs- the eggs you receive will be similar to as pictured, but not exact.

Eggs do not stand up on their own:)
