Orthoceras fossils have been found dating back to the Ordovician period ( 400+ million years ago) and are the earliest recognizable creatures. Ancestors to the modern day squid. Although among the earliest forms of life, this class of nautiloid is still considered to be one of the most intelligent forms of ocean life. The Orthoceras ranged in size from a few inches in length to over six feet and could swim as well as crawl on the ocean floor.

It is said that they could also float through the Ocean by filling the chambers in their shells with air and propelling themselves by squirting jets of water. Their shells accumulated on the ocean floor, covered by sediments they transformed into stone over the ages. Orthoceras had long straight shells, so their fossils now have an iridescent gemlike quality when polished. Orthoceras are commonly found in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco.

In ancient times, fossils were believed to be a gift from the stars and were revered by many cultures. Because of their age they have been used throughout the centuries and are used as talismans for protection and long life.
