Formation: Ktaoua Formation

Size: Plate is over 8 inches across
Here is an excellent echinoderm specimen from the Ordovician of Morocco. This plate contains two beautiful, large, true starfish fossils. The distinct starfish exhibit gorgeous detail. The plate structure is wonderfully displayed, and all five of the long arms are intact on each star - it is highly unusual to have all of the arms so nicely preserved. The fossils have excellent, orange coloration that contrasts strikingly with the tan matrix. The fossils are well showcased on the large, natural block of sandy shale that also contains two partial starfish and an edrioasteroid. This is a highly displayable multiple starfish fossil from North Africa.
A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
