Sea urchins are marine animals belonging to the Echinoidea class. They are round invertebrates covered with spikes.
Their name comes from the Greek word Eckinos meaning « hedgehog ».
Sea urchins appeared at the end of the Ordovician period (450 million years). Currently, there are about 1000 known sea urchin species classified in more than 70 families.
Sea urchins are made of a mineral envelope more or less spherical according to the species. This protection is what is going to be fossilized in the end and shows a star pattern more or less visible. For some species, this pattern looks like a flower. It is mainly due to this pattern that the sea urchin is present in numerous legends and stories all over the world.
