AMAZING NATURAL DEATH ASSEMBLAGE SMOTHERED WITH AT LEAST TWELVE CRINOID CROWNS OF THE SILURIAN ERA (BORDERING ON THE DEVONIAN) CRINOID Scyphocrinus elegans (SOMETIMES REFERRED TO AS Scyphocrinites) FROM THE ATLAS MOUNTAIN REGION OF MOROCCO, NORTH AFRICA. THESE DJEBEL ISSOUMOUR BEDS HAVE PROVIDED MANY BEAUTIFUL SPECIMENS SUCH AS THIS, BUT NO MORE AS THE AREA HAS BEEN DEPLETED! THIS GIANT SLAB IS NATURALLY PRESENTED HERE WITHOUT THE TYPICAL RUSTY RED AND BLACK COLORATION ADDED TO IT BY MORE RECENT MOROCCAN PREPARATORS.

MEASURING 21 INCHES (53cm) HIGH WITH THE BOTTOM SAWCUT ACROSS TO CREATE A FREE-STANDING BASE, IT ALSO MEASURES 22-3/4 INCHES (58cm) WIDE x 3-1/2 INCHES (9cm) THICK. VERY HEAVY AT A TOTAL SHIPPING WEIGHT OF OVER 50lbs. (23kg). INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS THAT ARE INTERESTED, PLEASE PROVIDE COUNTRY AND IF YOU HAVE A SUGGESTED METHOD OF TRANSPORT, PROVIDE THAT AS WELL FOR AN ESTIMATE.

THE 3-D INFLATION OF SOME OF THESE CROWNS IS SHOWN BY THE PHOTO WITH THE STANDARD 9 VOLT BATTERY (2 INCHES HIGH) STANDING UPRIGHT AND BELOW THE HEIGHT OF ONE CROWN! THE SECOND PHOTO IS TAKEN NEXT TO A WHEEL AND TIRE FROM A FULL SIZE CHEVY TRAILBLAZER SUV AND THE 10TH PHOTO IS TAKEN AGAINST TILES MEASURING ONE SQUARE FOOT EACH WITH A 1 INCH DIAMETER QUARTER ON IT. THERE ARE NATURAL VEINS IN THE SLAB AS WELL AS SOME WELL-HIDDEN CEMENT USED TO SUPPORT FRACTURES DURING EXTRACTION. BE SURE TO VIEW THE PHOTOS IN SUPERSIZE MODE FOR THE GREATEST DETAIL.

RATHER THAN SELLING AS A BUY IT NOW FOR THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS, I HAVE CHOSEN TO SACRIFICE THIS GROUPING THAT WAS HELD IN A PRIVATE COLLECTION FOR WELL OVER 10 YEARS FOR A LOW STARTING BID WELL BELOW IT'S ORIGINAL COST.



I have free shipping and handling. I do not charge tax. I do ship within 24-72 hours after payment.
If you have any questions please email me. Thanks
