Very Nice Multiple Crinoid Plate - Gilmore City

Here is a nice 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 five crinoids preserved (3 Eretmocrinus tentor, one Dichocrinus multiplex, and one Rhodocrinites cavanaughi). The crinoids are well displayed, with LONG stems present on many of the crinoids. The fossil echinoderms have great color and contrast and are naturally positioned on the large plate of limestone. This is a very cool crinoid multiple from a classic locality that is now closed to collecting.

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