Pentacrinites Crinoid

Product description

A superb quality, Pentacrinites fossilis crinoid plate from the Jurassic Period, 206m to 144m years old. It was discovered in the Lower Lias, Stonebarrow, Charmouth, Dorset, England.
It has been wonderfully pyritised, as is normal for this location.
 
Although resemblig plants, they are members of the phylum Echinodermata, and fed by filtering plankton from the oceans.
They anchored themselves with their stems, and used their crowns to collect nutrients.
 
Finding specimens from this location is lmost impossible these days, so this piece offers a great opportunity to add a Pentacrinites to your collection.
