Crinoids are a fascinating species, and this fossil is equally as fascinating. Crinoids are echinoderms and are a filter feeding, plant like marine animal and first appeared on the earth's surface over 500 million years ago in the Cambrian Era. Stemmed crinoids flourished in the Paleozoic seas with their remains abundant in Paleozoic rock sequences.  Today a close relative of the Crinoid still survives at the bottom of the ocean and is usually referred to as a "sea lily."

GAL101C   CRINOID FOSSIL PLAQUE

This Crinoid fossil is an extremely well preserved specimen from Morocco.  It has three nice fairly complete Crinoid fossils and parts of several others.  This plaque in the matrix measures approximately 22" x 20" x 1 3/4" thick and weighs over 35 1/2 pounds. In excavating these amazing fossils they sometimes break. This particular one has a few fractures that have been very well repaired and in no way deters from it's beauty or stability. An excellent addition to any collection!
