Orthoceras Fossil Book
Erfoud, Draa-Tafilalet, Morocco
19.3 x 14.6 x 3.2 cm.
A large and quite attractive specimen of polished Orthoceras fossils from Morocco. It features a nearly 5 pound piece of Orthoceras very cleverly carved into the shaped of a book. Even though much of this material is available, these “books” are very hard to find; I was lucky to find one dealer with a few of these at the Tucson show several years ago.
