A beautifully preserved double specimen with many spines still attached. The detail is very good and would make an important addition for the collector. This locality is only temporary and so there will be little or no chance of any more of these echinoids. Collected in 1963.
This lovely specimen has been preserved in solid calcite and was discovered in 1963 in a temporary exposure. The detail throughout is very fine and the specimen has been fully prepared to reveal beautiful spines. This locality does not exist anymore as a fossil locality so this wonderful Echinoid will be an important addition for the collector. Approximately 165 million years old.
A fairly common species from the British chalk, however this stands out from the rest as it is of supreme quality which Fossils Direct strive to provide to our customers. A small piece of flint is attached to the underside which only adds extra aesthetics to this already beautiful specimen.
