Crinoids from Charmouth and Lyme Regis, UK

These are fragments of ancient fossilised remains of sea creatures known as Crinoids.

These pieces were all collected around the Jurassic Coast of Charmouth or Lyme Regis in the UK. These mortality plates are some of the more uncommon fossils to find, compared to Ammonites and Belemnites; single Crinoid stems are easy to find almost anywhere!

We sell a few different pieces; they are all broken off larger pieces. Unfortunately, they are often broken when found.

Our current stock includes:

  • #1 - 33x18x3.4MM - a small piece with several stem fragments. Coated with a light layer of preservative.
  • #2 - 28x25x6.5MM - a well preserved piece with a golden shine; this has been rubbed with a brass brush to bring the golden colour out of the Pyrite.
  • #3 - 100x55x6MM - a well preserved and fairly large piece which has unfortunately been broken upon removal and repaired. This specimen is Pyritic but has not been brushed.
  • #4 - 70x30x15MM - a Limestone piece with some good details, absolutely filled with fossils!
  • #5 - 100x98x18MM - a large Calcite piece from Lyme Regis with excellent details, containing numerous fossils, including partial calyx and head. This is most likely Pentacrinites sp.
  • #6 - 84.4x58.5x11.5MM - an exceptionally detailed piece, partially pyritised.
  • #7 - 65x28x8MM - a smaller Calcite/Limestone piece which has unfortunately suffered some weathering - a great budget option.

Frequently asked questions and delivery information

How do we grade stones?

There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.


How does our ordering and delivery process work?

You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.

I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.


How do international orders work?

After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.


I’d like to return my order for a refund.

No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.


What payment methods do you accept?

I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.
