  ref 1573.4
  This incomplete but incredible chalk starfish was discovered in 1999 and has resided in the late GORDON WALKDEN collection ever since. This specimen exhibits associated central disc and arm ossicles. Only very rarely is a complete starfish found in the chalk and the vast majority of those are in museums. This example may? have been predated on before its death. The quality is superb and would grace any English chalk collection. There is also a picture which accompanies the specimen of a mostly complete example in the NHM.

  Quality brittlestars are becoming increasingly difficult to find thesedays. This very attractive example lies in a shaped piece of hard siltstone. The base of the stone has been cut flat for upright display. This particular fossil was discovered in 1999 and has been fully prepared. There is a thin calcite vein which runs through a couple of legs but this does not detract from this lovely display fossil. Approximately 190 million years old.
