Rough Orthoceras Fossil Bookend Pair
Natural Rough Orthoceras fossil bookends
The distinctive bullet-like shell of these nautiloids was once divided into gas-filled chambers, which kept the creatures buoyant in the water. They are now fossilised in black limestone and often found in clusters, washed together by the ancient sea currents.
The black fossil bookends are made from an entirely natural material and so the detailed patterning will vary from set to set.
Height: 14cm - 15cm
Width: 9cm across base, each bookend half
By their very nature, the fossil bookends are a natural product and the exact size and composition will vary in it's detail.
