This is a exceptionally nice, and extremely large specimen of a fossil brittle star (Palaeocoma egertoni) from the Lyme Regis region on England. It is Lower Jurassic in age or approximately 190 million years old. It's been nicely prepared using air abrasives to expose the wonderful detail. These brittle stars are extremely rare, particular examples as nice as this one. This one is the largest example which I have seen.
