Because the size of this plate it will need to be shipped via freight shipping which will be biller separately from the purchase. Please contact us if you need to freight shipping quote.

This is a spectacular, 41" wide plate off Ordovian aged brittle stars, Trilobites and Crinoids from the Kataoua Formation of Morocco. There are around 90 brittle stars of the class Ophiuroidea, 6 large Selenopeltis trilobites, 1 Mucronaspis trilobites and about a half dozen undescribed crinoids.

What makes this plate so species is there is NO COMPOSITING, it is one solid piece and there is minimal restoration (3-5%) mostly on the Selenopeltis trilobites. Because of this, this is one of the nicest, large plates from the area which I've seen and would make for an amazing display.

We can add a backing and mounting system to this plate to allow it to be hung on a wall.
