5.2" Fossil Nautilus (Aturia) - Boujdour, Morocco

 
 
 
 
This is a stunning, 5.2" wide, Eocene aged nautilus (Aturia sp) fossil collected near Boujdour in Southwest Morocco. It has been nicely prepared to show off it's beautiful suture pattern, which is one of the more complex of all nautiloids.

There is some repair work to the specimen as they tend to be fairly fragile, as well as a few areas there there might be a small amount of restoration. It has been left partially embedded in the limestone, creating a fantastic display base for the specimen.
