DescriptionBEAUTIFULLY AESTHETIC LARGE SINGULAR CRINOID WITH CURVED STEM
Crawfordsville, Montgomery County, Indiana
This singularly beautiful Crinoid displays artistically on its gently undulating shale matrix. The fossil features an unusually long stem with a slight but elegant curve. The calyx is somewhat compressed, obviously the result of the forces at work when the Crinoid was fossilized. This lithe representation is reminiscent of a "flower" bending towards the sun with significant relief where the top comes out of the rock. It has been identified as Actinocrinites gibsoni and is a relatively big example. The Crinoid is 11.75 inches (29.85 cm) long, and the rock itself is 15 x 11 x 2 inches (38.1 x 27.94 x 5.08 cm).
[Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
