Ordovician Brittlestar & Carpoid Fossil Association - Morocco

 
This is a nice association of two different types of echinoderm fossils from the Ordovician aged
Kataoua Formation of Morocco. There is a very detailed, 1.8" wide brittlestar (Ophiura sp) as well as a 3" long carpoid. The bright orange coloration is natural and due to the oxidization of iron pyrite. There is a couple of repaired cracks in the rock.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.
