Barycrinus crassibrachiatus Fossil CrinoidDescription: This is an exceptionally well-preserved and large specimen of this Inadunate Cladid crinoid species. The crown and stem are fully 3D, complete and strikingly life-like in appearance. The Barycrinus was meticulously prepared using air abrasion. It lies flat and gracefully centered on a light gray matrix base. The aesthetics are superb.

This magnificent specimen comes from a high-end collection I was privileged to acquire a small part of recently. The collector took great pride in the quality and aesthetics of every piece acquired.
