The Scyphocrinites Elegans Lilies

Enquire today for a chance to own one of the more scientifically scientific important fossil specimens available to date. The Scyphocrinites Elegans lilies are one of the worlds wonders that inhabited our ancient oceans some 443,500,000 years ago.

Now professionally excavated and expertly prepared. Each Scyphocrinites lily exhibits their entire anatomy from the bulb to the calyx crown head consistent of feather-like pinnule-filter feeding arms. Conserved within the ancient red Devonian seabeds in the Western Saharan Desert, seamlessly creating a sense of motion as to what was once a sea full of life; now a moment captured in time. 

From one of the earliest periods of prehistoric life, the Scyphocrinites lily crinoids display multiple colonies reaching 2 meters in length, similar to a specimen exhibited at the Musée des Confluences in Lyon reaching a length of 1.6 meters.

These Scyphocrinites lilies contrast beautifully against the natural bedrock as much as one-another, laying upon one-another with the natural oceanic limestone beneath. The lilies exhibit undertones of sharp greys throughout the calyx crowns combined with flecks of calcite and quartz that have been deposited over millions of years.

Such extinction-level events would have disturbed the prehistoric oceans, many effectively covered with silt debris that have succumb to bacterial breakdown within the anoxic environments that may have presented themselves, creating in turn, such empowering and wondrous displays.

Crinoid species are still habitating in our oceans today. 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 6,000 meters / 4 miles.
