6 Great Crinoid Fossil Stone/Rock Specimens/Clusters

These Crinoid Stones were found in South Central Kentucky and are believed to be from the Mid to Late Paleozoic Period: 542 - 251 million years ago. They are raw - we simply cleaned with water & a sponge.

You will receive these exact stones - as pictured.
Approximate Measurements:
1. 3.5" long X 2" high X 1.25" wide.
2. 3.5" long X 1.5" high X 1.25" wide.
3. 3.5" long X 1" high X 2.5" wide.
4. 1.5" long X 2.5" high X .5" wide.
5. 2.5" long X .75" high X 1.75" wide.
6. 2.25" long X .5" high X .75" wide.

Excellent Crinoid segments & pieces embedded on all sides of these rocks.

Known as "Sea Lillies" or "Feather Stars" - They are among the most primitive and ancient of ocean invertebrate.

The fossils were commonly used in the Bronze Age as beads. In Germany, these were known as Bonifacius Pfennige or "St. Boniface's Pennies" and were used as "Fairy Money" - believed to entice fairies to an area and bring prosperity. In the North of England, they have been known since the 17th Century as "St. Cuthbert's Beads". In New England and other US locations, they are commonly called "Indian Money": perhaps because they look vaguely like the wampum beads made by various Indian tribes.

Archeologists excavating at the Grand Canyon discovered crinoids strung by the Ancestral Puebloan Native Americans that lived there about 1000 years ago.

These stones are superb fossil collector specimens; perfect for art projects; decorations for a large terrarium or for aquariums; great looking natural additions to a bookshelf; a must-have for every type of garden.
