Gilmore City Crinoids
Formation: Gilmore City Formation
Location: Gilmore City, Iowa
Size: Plate is 3.4 inches across
Here is a wonderful 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. The plate has four crinoids preserved (two Aorocrinus iola (left), and two Eretmocrinus tentor). All of the crinoids are extremely detailed and beautifully displayed, with stems present on many of the crinoids. The fossil echinoderms have great color and contrast and are naturally positioned on the rectangular plate of limestone. This is a very nice crinoid multiple from a classic locality that is now closed to collecting.
A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
