Crinoid Stem Segment Fossil - Flower Power!

These pictures show a crinoid stem segment fossil. It was found in the Glen Dean Member of Grayson County, Kentucky, USA. The fossil dates to the Mississippian Period. It looks like a little flower or maybe an asterisk. I will probably end up using one of the stem pieces on my fossil Christmas tree at the end of the year.
