This beautiful fossil sanddollar from Madagascar has incredible detail. The original shell consisted of small, thin, interlocking calcareous plates that have completely turned to stone. This fossil shows the 5 point "flower" symmetry common to the animal in the echinodermato phylum. This sanddollar is slightly less than 3" in diameter and protrudes 1" at its center high point.
