Pyrite is a very common mineral composed of iron disulfide (II) (FeS2) which takes its name from the Greek word pyros (fire) because it produces sparks if struck with a piece of metal. Because of the gold color it was known in the past as the fool’s gold; if heated to the flame it emits a mixture of sulfides with the classic smell of rotten eggs.

FOSSILS

SHARK FOSSIL TOOTH – OTODUS OBLIQUUS

tooth shark fossil

Click to enlarge

Class: Chondroichthyes
Order: Lamniformes
Family: Otodontidae
Genus: Otodus
Species: O. obliquus
Origin: Morocco

Price:  10,00 €

Item number:   102

The Otodus obliquus shark lived between the late Paleocene and the Eocene, between 40 and 60 million years ago. Like all sharks, its skeleton was made of cartilage and this is the reason why only teeth and some fossilized vertebrae have arrived in our days. The Otodus obliquus was a large predator whose size reached about 9-10 m in length and 15 tons in weight. Fossils (teeth and vertebrae) have been found from excavations in Africa, Europe, Asia and North America, a situation that suggests that this shark was widespread in the oceans of 60 million years ago. Given its size and characteristics, it is hypothesized that the Otodus obliquus feed on marine mammals, large bony fishes and other sharks. Currently almost all of the teeth of this huge shark come from the phosphate mines of Morocco. The teeth of the Otodus obliquus have a triangular shape, are wide (up to 8-10 cm) with smooth and sharp edges and there are one or more lateral cusps.

Item number:   105

Plaster cast obtained from a true fossil; 1: 1 scale; color as the original. Elratia (Gen. Elrathia) is an extinct arthropod belonging to the trilobites. He lived in the middle Cambrian (about 505 million years ago) and his fossilized remains were found exclusively in North America. The cephalic shield of this trilobite was relatively small compared to the thorax; the central part (glabella) was small and shaped like a bud, while the eyes were central and there were two structures on either side of the cephalon (genital spines). The thorax consisted of 13 segments, with a narrow axis and enlarged and slightly pointed lateral parts. The terminal part of the body (pigidium) was short. In total the body did not exceed the average length of two centimeters.

Order: Ammonitida

Genus: Perisphinctes
Species: Perisphinctes sp.
Origin: Madagascar

Price:  6,00 €

Item number:   107

Plaster cast obtained from a true fossil; 1: 1 scale. Perisphinctes is an extinct cephalopod mollusc belonging to the ammonites. He lived in the Upper Jurassic (172-149 million years ago), and his fossil remains are found on all continents. The aspect of the shell of this ammonite is quite conventional: planispiral (wrapped in a flat spiral), symmetrical, serpenticona (in the shape of a coiled snake, with poor covering of the turns). At each growth stage, the shell has a sub-square section with rounded edges; the navel is very broad but not very deep. The ornamentation is made up of a number of sharp and slightly protruded ribs (arched forward, ie in the direction of the opening). Near the abdomen, the coasts are forking, crossing the ventral region without interruption (no hulls or ventral grooves are present).

Item number:   108

Plaster cast obtained from a true fossil; 1: 1 scale. The facope (Gen. Phacops) is an extinct arthropod belonging to the trilobites. Its fossils are very common in most of the world, and are found in soils from the Silurian to the Devonian (430-360 million years ago). This animal was one of the most typical and widespread trilobites. The body was oval in shape, with a large head (cephalon) and a small posterior part (pygidium). The central region of the head (glabella) was large and posteriorly narrow, adorned with numerous large granules that covered the entire surface. The eyes, often well preserved in fossils, are very large. At the hypostoma (a ventral plate placed near the mouth) two uniramated antennae originated. The characteristic “three lobes” typical of the entire class were of very similar dimensions and well rounded.

Crinoids are marine animals that make up the class Crinoidea of the echinoderms (phylum Echinodermata). The name comes from the Greek word krinon, “a lily”, and eidos, “form”. The class includes 648 living species and over 5,000 fossil species. Having appeared in the Ordovician, the crinoids have become widespread throughout the Paleozoic period. During the Paleozoic and the Mesozoic they are among the main organisms producing carbonate, constituting the limestone with crinoids or encrinites. Over 5,000 fossil species have been described. Since the end of the Permian, most of the evolutionary lines of the crinoids (subclasses Cladida, Flexibilia, Camerata and Disparida) have been subjected to mass extinction, with the sole exception of the subclass of the Articulata, to which all living species belong currently known.
