Stunning, fossil sea urchin of gigantic dimensions. Monsters of this size are extremely rare and unique in nature. The preparation of the specimen was very thorough, preserving the finest details of the carapace. The specimen is located on a self-supporting natural stand. The whole set (rock-fossil) is original and natural. The site where they are found is characterised by a very hard black limestone, a fact that makes preparation extremely difficult. The specimen is slightly deformed and has small ambulacrum in the oral area. Specimens of this size and quality are very rare and scarce.
