Chambered Nautiloid set in natural black marble. Nautiloids are a large and diverse group of marine cephalopods which began in the Late Cambrian period, and are represented today by the living Nautilus and Allonautilus.
The specimens found in the formation can be dated to the Devonian period - approximately 380 million years ago -and were found at the Tindouf Basin in modern day Morocco.
