Fossils:  Crinoids
These are often called sea lilies, however they are not plants, but echinoderms. They are in the same family as modern star fish, sea biscuits and urchins. Most species attached them selves to the ocean floor with a stem and root section and waited for the currents to bring them food. They would gather with their radial arms extending from the cup.

Solnhofen Floating Crinoids

Order: Comatuida, Genus: Saccocoma. These Solnhofen floating crinoid are as their name says, they did not attach themselves to the sea bed, but rather floated in the Jurassic waters of what is now the sandstone layers of the Solnhofen limestone. These specimens have been stained to bring out detail. The approximate dimensions of the specimen is 1- 3/4 in diameter on a 2 1/2 to 4 inches nibbled oval matrix.  They make an excellent book case display. We recommend a DIS-35B display stand for this fossil.
