Taxocrinus whitfieldi Crinoid

A prepped crinoid calyx fossil called Taxocrinus whitfieldi. I think this fossil is from Indiana and probably from the Mississippian Period. It just had a name label with it. Apologies for the image color has I had the camera set to the wrong lighting, the fossil it not that blue in tint. Thanks to Mark for letting me photograph it. Units on scale are in inches.
