Fossil Sea Urchin

Tulear, Madagascar
Scientific Name:
Jurassic, 200-145 Million Years

Small Sea Urchins from Madagascar, these little specimens exhibit a five-pointed star pattern typical of may of their Echinoderm kin. A lovely little item for a bowl or curiosity collection!

Sea urchins are small, spiny animals that live on the ocean floor. Their spines, which do not preserve well as fossils, serve as protection and as a means to move across the ocean floor. They move slowly, feeding mostly on algae. 

Despite their abundance, these fossilized sea urchins are a relatively new discovery. They are great for small gifts, decoration, or making jewelry.

Evolution also carries modern-day sea urchins!

Individual shapes and fossils vary but your item will resemble the pictured example.
