FOSSIL SEA URCHIN (ECHINOID)

80 million years old
(Cretaceous period)


Langdon Bay, Dover, Kent

This heart-shaped Micraster is complete and well-preserved, although it is missing part of the shell. Part of the chalk matrix has been retained so it sits on a chalk pedestal for display.

Sea urchins, or echinoids, are marine creatures with shells covered in spines, which became detached when the animal died. Fossils of the sea urchin Micraster can be found in the Chalk of southern England. 

This fossil is from an old collection and was collected in the 1980s.


Please note that some photographs are taken using oblique lighting to make the surface details easier to see.
