I expect this to be posted to TFF!! Otherwise, what an unbelievable echinoid! Now that your bar is set so high, it will be interesting what you find next year.

Sooo... The little echie is getting prepped, thanks to @JohnJ (thanks a MILLION) and this is what it's starting to look like! Awfully Pretty, if I do say so myself.

Uncommonly encountered, we have juvenile to adult echinoids in the project.  This fully adult specimen exhibits perfectly preserved characteristics seen only on one other specimen in our study.  It is gorgeous!  Congrats again, Jamie.

That's a real beaut of an echinoid and it looks even better with its makeover. :b_wdremel:

 

So glad that it is a SIS (Scientifically Important Specimen) that will help to further our knowledge.

 

 

Cheers.

Thanks everyone!! @Misha - it is 15 mm

Wow, that's tiny but the detail is still really nice.

I have no idea how you'd prep something so small with even finer details.
