Those are lovely, especially like the colour banding, I myself only have one specimen that shows that and that is a small Jurassic echinoid. They look very well preserved.

If you don't look, you won't find.

Unfortunately it is quite indistinct, the colour of the echinoid is grey and the colour banding is simply a couple stripes of darker grey on the test.

Thomas,
anyway your echinoid is exceptional.
when the colors are preserved even partially we have a pseudomorphs shell. It's a process of substitution of substances molecule by molecule less stable than the original structures.
Sometimes it's just filling the microcavities freed of organic matter, while the fossil remains unchanged. The preservation of color is truly an exceptional case.
