3D Orthoceras

Recommended Posts

Hey every body. Here is a question.

Why aren't orthoceras 3d? I mean belemnites and baculites are things that you can take out of the matrix and hold in your hand, while orthoceras seems to be just an impresion or something.

Pleases enlighten.

Thanks,

If it helps as well, I know that most of the ones I have seen come out of Morocco, the matrix there is extremely hard, so I always assumed they just didn't dig them out because they can't, or don't want to waste the time since they are so plentiful.

Ok. Thank you.

But what would an orthoceras out of the matrix look like?
