This is an amazing fossil starfish specimen from the Ordovician of Morocco. This plate contains a beautiful, complete Petraster starfish. The fossil sea star exhibits incredible detail - all five of the long arms are intact, and the plate structure is easily seen - it is extremely unusual to have all of the arms intact and splayed out like this. The fossil has excellent, natural orange coloration which contrasts strikingly with the light brown matrix. The fossil is nicely inflated and beautifully showcased on the natural block of sandstone. This is a top quality, highly collectible true starfish fossil from North Africa - what a display piece!

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
