Fossil plate with echinoderms, making sure I found the correct tag.

Hello. I have still been going through boxes of mostly cave mineral from a large estate sale purchase, mostly consisting of cave minerals. The tags that remain are not attached to the pieces and usually scattered among many boxes. This amazing plate I found recently and believe I finally found the label. I just need justification. I haven't found any other plates like this one. It's stunning in person!

It's stunning in the picture too!

At least you were able to find the label for this one. Hopefully someone will confirm.

It definitely looks like burlington crinoidal limestone to me. I have a lot where I live here in Mo where I've found nice calyxs like yours pictured, but haven't collected Ralls County.

The lithology and the species are definitely consistent with the Burlington Formation.  Great plate!!  :wub: :wub: :drool:

I have. It's like the surface of an alien planet, so many very tiny bits not visible in the photo here. I'm smitten with it!
