This is a very rare fossil. It is a large Camptostroma roddyi from York County, Pennsylvania. Camptostromas are one of the earliest known types of echinoderms. Found in the Lower Cambrian, these rare, Medusa-like animals had a distinct plate structure and an unusual orange-brown coloration in the Kinzers shale. This enigmatic fossil has fine detail and contrasts well with the lighter-colored matrix. The tiny, distinct plates are easily seen under magnification. The large Campto displays well on the repaired plate of shale that also contains a partial Olenellus cephalon. This is a very cool Lower Cambrian echinoderm/trilobite association piece from Pennsylvania.
