Beautiful Orthocera fossil sculpture in the shape of a tower with a flat base. The piece has a flat back which allows it to be displayed as a small plaque or on a display stand. This makes an excellent starter piece or addition to any fossil collection. The name orthoceras refers to the long, straight conical shell. Orthoceras fossils are common, with global distribution in any marine rock, especially limestone. They are widespread in North America and are also found in Morocco.
