• Geological Age: Upper Chalk Formation, Cretaceous period, 100 to 65 million years ago.
• Location: Kent, UK
• Family: Echinoderm
• Species: Conulus albogalerus
Conulus albogalerus fossil echinoid specimens found in the Upper Chalk strata of Kent in the UK. Dated to the Cretaceous period, this species of echinoid is well known for its cone like shape, hence its name. The samples measures 5 cm in size and are available in various grades and sizes making certain ones suitable for educational use and others for display and collectors. Supplied in a card tray with a data label.
Conulus albogalerus echinoid specimens exhibiting excellent conical like shapes as expected, which is where this family of echinoids get their name from. From above, they display an oblong shape and measure between 30 to 50 mm in size. These fossils were found in the White Chalk (formerly Upper Chalk) formation, dating them to the Cretaceous period, between 100 to 65 million years old. They are an off white colour and from above, the characteristic petal formation of the ambulacra are visible. Some samples, such as the 'B' grade specimens will show signs of damage, but these are more than ideal for eeducational use should you require display evolution of fossils on a budget. A grade samples are also available and show much less damage and are suitable for both educational use and collectors. All fossils will come supplied in a card tray with an information label.
