Beautifully prepared Pseudocidaris
Incredible bulbous spines
Close up of incredible detail
A wonderful Pseudocidaris mammosa echinoid, discovered in the Kimeridgiegien Strata of Teruel, Spain
It dates from the Jurassic Period, 54 to 136 million years old.
This is a highly aesthetic fossil, and different in that it was discovered in Spain rather than the more common French variety.
Pseudocidaris, with its numerous bulbous spines, is perhaps the most exotic fossil echinoid in the world.
This fossil has been painstakingly cleaned and composited by an expert preparator over many hours.
The urchin itself is highly detailed, and the large club spines add to the display.
It has superb detail and is the best we have seen.
Suitable for museum display, or a wonderful addition to a private collection
Size: 4.5" x 4.5" x 4.5" tall
