Hunsruck Shale, Bundenbach, Germany
This exceptionally rare and large Ophiuroid starfish is from the iron-rich Hunsruck Shale near Bundenbach, Germany. Widely quarried in the past, today only a single quarry remains open in the main fossiliferous region of Bundenbach. This rich pyritized fauna is highly regarded by collectors.
