Crawfordsville, Indiana


Trilobita

Crinoidea

Asteroidea

Assemblage slabs of "Crawfordsville crinoids" adorn the walls of many museums and are a common element in many university teaching collections. Yale's holdings from Crawfordsville, Indiana are some of the Peabody's oldest acquisitions and its historically most significant material. The Crawfordsville fauna (crinoids, sponges, trilobites) is preserved in iron pyrite; a by-product of the deltaic environment of the Mississippian Edwardsville Formation. Shown above is a sample of specimen images from the Peabody collections.
