Despite their alien appearance, echinoids, or sea-urchins as they are better known, are very common in the seas and oceans of today and are common fossils too. Their name derives from the Greek 'echin' ('spiny'), referring to their protective spines and presumably 'ooid' (egg-like) in reference to their globular shell. Sea Urchins are part of a much larger group of animals known as the Echinoderms ('spiny-skins'), which also includes the Asteroids (starfish), Holothurians (sea cucumbers), Crinoids (sea lilies and feather stars) and the Ophiuroids (brittle stars).
Makes a great gift!
Revered by many cultures for centuries, Fossils, because of their age, are often used as talismans for protection and long life. They are links to the past and, as such, can be helpful for past-life visualization, astral travel and increased knowledge of ancient ways. Fossils are associated with the earth element, which can heighten one’s intuition, especially when learning about crystals.
