Description: This fossil is a wonderful sample of Encrinus liliiformis, probably the most classic crinoid from the German Triassic. It lies on a very beautiful slab, on which a longer stalk and specimens of the bivalve Plagiostoma are still present. The arms of the crown show colour pattern preservation. The fossil was obtained from an old collection and painstakingly reworked. The preparation was carried out carefully and in great detail with a microscope using airscribes, needles, scrapers and fine air abrasives. No restorations or reconstructions were carried out.

As with all my fossils, this specimen also comes with a signed certificate of authenticity, which confirms the authenticity of the fossil.
