Spectacular starfish of ± 4.1 cms in diameter; Piece measures ± 8.3 x 6.7cms
Perfectly cleaned with "sand blasting", that way have been extracted all the details. Specimens of intact starfish are quite infrequent in the fossil record. The specimen shows an incredible amount of details and the natural orange coloration is due to the oxidation of iron pyrite.
100% original fossil
