Echinocardium FossilDescription: Echinoids are not for everyone, definitely more for those with an academic or scholarly bent. Here is a rare species that I just acquired from an old and scientifically interesting collection. It is a ventral view. The dorsal is still entombed in the sandy matrix. Echinocardium is a genus of sea urchins of the family Loveniidae, known as the heart urchins.
