Displaying the sleek shapes and striking colours of fossilised orthoceras shells, this Orthoceras Fossil Plate is an eye-catching and stylish way to bring natural history into your home. The polished shells make a great accent to your home, combining dynamic shapes with the wonder of fossils unearthed after many millions of years.
Orthoceras were amoung the earliest recognisable animals,
ancestors to the modern day squid but with an external shell.
By filling the chambers of this shell with water and then squirting it out, they could propel themselves through the sea.
