These exotic earrings feature a gorgeous pair of ancient Orthoceras fossil stones wrapped in solid sterling silver. This type of fossil is related to the modern day squid and are approximately 350 million years old. They are found in the Sahara Desert of Morocco where they were once ocean dwellers. Their shells were preserved in the black marble in which they are found today. Each fossil has its own unique markings - but I was fortunate enough to find two which are similar in size & markings to make this striking, one-of-a-kind pair. Makes a great gift for anyone that loves natural stones and fossils!
