Here is a very large multiple crinoid plate from Gilmore City, Iowa. This classic location has been closed to collecting for a number of years, ever since some drunken fool drove his car over the wall of the quarry. However, we have acquired a lot of crinoids from a local collector who had them stashed away for decades. The plate has TWELVE excellent crinoids preserved (7 Eretmocrinus tentor, 3 Dichocrinus multiplex, and two rare Aorocrinus iola). ALL of the crinoids are beautifully displayed, with LONG stems present on many of the crinoids. The fossil sea lilies have great color and contrast and are naturally positioned on the large, rectangular plate of limestone. This is a very collectible crinoid multiple from an historic fossil locality. (The red dots are used for identification.)

This fossil was collected and obtained legally, and is also being sold legally.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
