Description: NAUTILUS DISPLAY
The nautilus is the marine cephalopod in which we see the closest remnant of the familiar ammonite fossil shape. This specimen has been carefully sliced in half to display its inner structure: from the large opening and living chambers, buoyancy chambers of gradually diminishing size spiral towards the central whorl, lined with the gently-shimmering mother-of-pearl nacre. A gorgeous display of nature's artistry, it is presented in a glazed and fabric-lined box frame measuring 16 x 13 inches.
