Description

SIZE (Picture scale cube=1cm): 270 x 270 x 60mm

This spectacular piece could make an impressive serving bowl at parties, or simply displayed as a beautiful ornament. The bowl is made from the famous Black Marble of Morocco, and has been carved out and polished with genuine Orthoceras fossils embedded within it. These Orthoceras sea creatures are Devonian age.#

Orthoceras, meaning “Straight Horn”, was a cephalopod that lived more than 400 million years ago. Its name refers to the characteristic long, straight, conical shell these possessed. The soft body lived in the last open-ended segment at the large end of the conical shell, the preserved fossilised shell is all that remains.
