3.4" Jurassic Club Urchin (Asterocidaris) - Boulmane, Morocco

This is a 3.4" wide Middle Jurassic club urchin (Asterocidaris meandrina) fossil from Boulmane, 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.
