Crinoidea - Phylum Echinodermata

Oceanic Elegans Lily Wall 2.4M

ENQUIRE

A highly important scientific discovery of a stunning Scyphocrinites elegans sea lily  Devonian wall plate measuring 2.4 m and now conserved within this ancient seabed, known as the Western Saharan Desert. These ancient sea lilies not only seamlessly create a sense of motion to what was once a seabed full of life, but a moment captured in a prehistoric time, but each Scyphocrinites lily also exhibits their entire anatomy from the roots to the calyx crown head consisting of feather-like pinnule-filter feeding arms.

Now from one of the earliest periods of prehistoric life, these Crinoids display multiple colonies reaching 2.4M in length, similar to a specimen exhibited at the Musée des Confluences in Lyon reaching 1.6M. These extraordinary lilies contrast against one another as they lay upon another on a wondrous and subtle mauve 358,900,000-year-old limestone. Each lily exhibits undertones of greys within the flower heads whilst displaying flecks of calcite and quartz minerals that have deposited within this unique and beautifully preserved colony.

It was primary disaster events that cause disturbance to the seafloor, affectively covering such prehistoric colonies with silt debris and succumb to bacterial breakdown within an anoxic environment, whilst also curating the perfect preservation and mineralisation process for such wonders - also a subspecies between plants and animals with two record-breaking discoveries displaying lengths of 40 meters situated in coral reefs and persist in our oceans today dwelling at great depths as far as 6,000M / 4 miles. Overall this plate of Scyphocrinites Elegans Crinoidea specimens is exquisite, not only has it been beautifully preserved, it has been expertly conserved.

Arms; a series of articulated ossicles (Pinnules) used in suspension to feed and for respiration.  
 Gonads; are also located within the arms where fertilisation takes place during mass spawning.
 Calyx; the crown or aboral cup containing the vital organs, mostly devoted to food retainment.
 Baluster bulb-root; attaching to driftwood, coral beds and buoyancy during migration through ocean currents.
• Stem; columned support from the baluster root to the crown flower.
