On offer is a beautiful Lobolith (floathing sphere) of Scyphocrinites. Scyphocrinites have been found in Asia, North America, Europe, and Africa. Instead of being rooted to the ground like most crinoids, Scyphocrinites had a lobolith, which is a floating sphere that keeps an animal afloat in water. Unlike other crinoids, Scyphocrinites hung upside down at the surface.

The black-and-white section of the ruler in the image represents 10 cm (3.9 inch). This comes with a stainless steel display stand.

This piece formed part of the Museum Biochron in Emmen in The Netherlands. The Museum has recently deaccessioned part of its collections. This piece falls outside or our main territory of expertise but we have attempted to catalogue it as professionally as possible and we are able to offer these pieces at competitive prices.

Shipping: $ 35 for the European Union, $ 50 for the rest of the world.
