Huge, 1.95" Cyphaspides Trilobite - Jorf, Morocco
This is a huge, 1.95" long specimen of a long-spined Cyphaspides trilobite Jorf, Morocco. This is substantially larger than most specimens that are closer to an inch in length. It's nicely inflated and prepared.
The rock from this location is partially metamorphised giving the shell of the trilobites a translucent, glass-like texture but making them extremely difficult and time consuming to prepare. This incredible specimen was prepared by one of the very best preparators in the world and the quality of the work shows.
