  1. I found a small fossil (6-7cms) of a starfish in shingle on my driveway. It’s well defined with a clear set of arms which have two rows of matched tiny bones. However, from where the arms end there is clear evidence of tentacles that extend and whose structure changes to a twin row of single tentacles. (I have a picture of this but couldn’t find a way to upload it.)

    I have tried to match it up to pictures or articles on the internet but have drawn a blank. Can anyone identify this or point me to somewhere/someone that can please? I am not a collector or fossil enthusiast but am curious as to what this is and how old it might be.
