Montgomery County, Indiana, USA
This exquisite crown of an Agaricocrinus Crinoid features a subtle pinkish hue and fine detail, which was the obvious result of an expert preparation. The specimen is relatively quite large, and with long, flowing arms featuring fine segmentation and feathery, hair-like "pinnules" throughout the complex form. Perfectly angled on a block of contrasting gray matrix, this fossil is exceptional for the variety. Belonging to the same genus as the "mushroom" Crinoid, this specimen's top is sublime. Like stemless glassware, the stemless Crinoid is a most elegant representation. This quality piece is from the definitive American locality for Crinoid fossils.
