SK2855 : Crinoidal Horizons

near to Bolehill, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Crinoidal Horizons
Crinoidal Horizons
Seen in the Eyam limestones, bivalves/brachiopods can be seen. In the Devonian most reef builders were wiped out in a mass extinction so algal mats were prominent. The limestone here is mostly carbonate mud. These crinoids and valves were possibly washed here from the reefs in a storm?
