Wholesale Lot: Gerastos Trilobite Fossils - 30 Pieces
We just launched our new wholesale areas. Check out the wholesale fossils, minerals & crystals section for more listings. Very little of the wholesale inventory that we currently have in stock is listed on the website. If there is something specific you are looking for, or if you are looking to purchase different quantities, please contact us at [email protected] or (866) 550-2013This is a wholesale flat of 30 Gerastos trilobites. These trilobites are Devonian in age and were collected in Morocco. Most are laying prone while others are enrolled. You will receive the exact flat of material pictured. The preparation is a bit rough, hence the bargain price on these. Some have areas of shell restoration, but the majority are free of restoration.
Trilobites were a very diverse group of extinct marine arthropods. They first appeared in the fossil record in the Early Cambrian (521 million years ago) and went extinct during the Permian mass extinction (250 million years ago). They were one of the most successful of the early animals on our planet with over 25k described species, filling nearly every evolutionary niche. Due in large part to a hard exoskeleton (shell), they left a excellent fossil record.
