Oceanic Elegans Lily Wall 2.4M

ENQUIRE

*Specimen photographed not available.

Enquire today for a chance to own one of the more scientifically important fossil specimens this decade. The Crinoidea Lilly is becoming more difficult to attain, making such pieces even more sought after.

Our Crinoids are professionally excavated and expertly prepared, Dimensions range around 2300mm tall by 900mm wide (2.3M x 0.9M). These highly important discoveries represent the purest form. Each Scyphocrinites lily exhibits the entire anatomy from the roots to the calyx crown head consisting of feather-like pinnule-filter feeding arms.

Now conserved within ancient seabeds in the Western Saharan Desert and still hold a wonderful display that seamlessly creates a sense of motion to what was once a seabed full of life; now a moment captured in a prehistoric time.

Now from one of the earliest periods of prehistoric life, these Crinoids display multiple colonies reaching 2M in length, similar to a specimen exhibited at the Musée des Confluences in Lyon reaching 1.6M.

Contrasting against one another, the lilies lay upon one another with the natural oceanic limestone beneath displaying wondrous subtle mauves dating some 358,900,000 years. The lilies exhibit undertones of sharp greys throughout the calyx crowns combined with flecks of calcite and quartz that have been deposited within the preserved colony.

Such extinction-level events would have disturbed the prehistoric oceans, and many effectively covered such colonies with silt debris, succumbing to bacterial breakdown within an anoxic environment, a catalyst for the perfect preservation.

The Crinoid species is still among us in our oceans today and is known to be a subspecies between plants and animals with two record-breaking discoveries displaying lengths of up to 40 meters. Usually situated in coral reefs, dwelling at great depths as far as 6,000M (4 miles).

Anatomy

• Stem; columned support from the baluster root to the crown flower.
Arms; a series of articulated ossicles (Pinnules) to feed and for respiration.  
 Gonads; within the arms where fertilisation takes place during mass spawning.
 Calyx; the crown/aboral cup contains vital organs, devoted to food retainment.
 Baluster bulb-root; attaches to coral or driftwood during migration.
