Fossils that are witnesses of the time before humans on earth!
Collectors will love this pair of quality fossil specimens: an ammonite and an orthoceras from Morocco. Did you know that they come from an ancient sea that has now become the Sahara desert. The orthoceras come from the Ordovician to the Triassic era (500 to 190 million years) and the ammonites lived from 65 to 415 million years ago.
Average specimens are 1 1/2 ” long
Did you know that the term ammonite originates from the Greek God Ammon, a god with ram horns, with the shape as the ammonite!
Each specimen is in an individual plastic case.
