Crinoid fossils in real life.

  • Crinoid is a fossil of the Pentacrinites variety, an extinct genus.
  • They are echinoderms related to starfish, sea urchins, and brittle stars.
  • Crinoids are estimated to be around 490 - 500 million years old.
  • Crinoids can live in both shallow and deep waters.
  • There are over 700 known species living today.
  • Crinoids are some of Earth's earliest animals, managing to survive through several global climate changes and mass extinctions (including the Permian mass extinction).
  • Some fossil crinoids were found attached to driftwood, which would eventually become waterlogged and fossilize with the crinoids attached to it.
  • The largest fossil crinoid stem found is 130 ft (40 m) long.
  • Fossilized crinoid stems have been used as beads for necklaces and rosaries.
  • The name name originates from the word Crinoidea, derived from the Greek word “krinon”, meaning "lily". This is also why they're called sea lilies.
  • Metaphysically, crinoid fossils are stones of inspiration, creativity, dream recall, and manifesting desires into reality.
    • Additionally, it's a stone of transformation and personal growth. It helps the wearer understand the process of change, move on from the past, and accept renewal.
