This ribbed shell is a fossil of the order Rhynchonellida.
These brachiopods have existed since the Ordovician period 485 million years ago. Their population was severely diminished during the Permian–Triassic extinction event 252 million years ago, but Rhynchonellida became the most abundant brachiopod group during the Mesozoic.
Please expect some natural variation.
