Strand of Cool Fossilized Crinoid Beads from Mali
32" strand of fossilized crinoid beads from Mali. Crinoids are a kind of ancient form of sea life; worms with a stalk and feathery feeders at their top. Weird. There are crinoids in the oceans today, but these beads are a fossilized species from millions of years ago. Beads vary in size, shape and bead hole (see photos), and all are cool and clunky! 50 beads total.
