Additional Info

Orthoceras is fascinating material. It is a window into life before homo sapiens walked the earth. Secred within the material is the fossilized shell of a pre-historic creature.

In recent years, Zuni carver Bernard Laiwakete carved it as a fetish bear, following the arrow-like direction of the structure to inlay a turquoise heart line.
