Moroccan Orthocerous Fossil
Can you imagine a 6-foot long squid shell? Well, here it is, preserved in Moroccan marble. It was unearthed from a mine over two miles up in the High Atlas Mountains of Northern Africa. Over 60 million years ago, the mountains were at sea level, where the squid lived and perished from a titanic extinction event. You can order this piece for $888 plus shipping.
At the bottom there’s a carved extension that allows the fossil to stand straight up.
