2.7" Jurassic Fossil Urchin (Firmacidaris) - Amellago, Morocco

This is a 2.7" wide, Early Jurassic club urchin (Firmacidaris precincta) fossil from Amellago, Morocco. All of the spines have been prepared individually from the limestone it was found in and mounted in a lifelike position. These urchins with spines are always composites because the spines break off from the body very quickly after they die. It's a very aesthetically pleasing and impressive fossil.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.
