Crinoids aren't the most well-known fossils by any means, but they're certainly one of the most interesting. Many collectors love that crinoids feature a unique flower shape that makes them truly distinctive among many other fossil types. Also known as "sea lilies," crinoids are not actually plants. Instead, they were creatures that lived long, long ago - about 490 million years ago, to be exact. They were found all over the sea floor, particularly in shallow marine environments. Though they were part of a mass extinction about 250 million years ago, people continue to cherish these relics of history today.
If you're looking for a unique fossil to add to your personal collection, these crinoids are an exceptional choice. Each one features a unique, detailed appearance that is beautifully fascinating.
