Description
Huge sea urchin, 65 mm !!! - Exceptional size !!! - Dickesicidaris turbeti (LAMBERT, 1933) - 65×65×50 mm
JURASSIC -Middle Jurassic , Bajocian (168.3–170.3 million years) - Guerssif (Morocco)

Stunning, fossil sea urchin of gigantic dimensions. The preparation of the specimen was very thorough, preserving the finest details of the carapace. The site where they are found is characterised by a very hard black limestone, a fact that makes preparation extremely difficult. Specimens of this size and quality are very rare and scarce. Specimen worthy of a museum due to its dimensions and quality.
