Details

This is a group of 3 trilobites - one Odontochile, a Reedops and a Crotalocephalus. The Odontochile trilobite measures 3 inches in length and the other 2 measure 1 inch. They date back to the Devonian time period approximately 400 million years ago. These trilobites are from Morocco, North Africa. I hand picked this piece myself and was careful to choose specimens with no restoration or paint, including this one. However, there may be repairs or a small amount of glue present. The reason for this is because of the way these trilobites are found. Before preparation, these trilobites are encapsulated in very hard rock. Trilobite diggers will crack pieces of rock and look for any evidence of a trilobite inside. After breaking the rock, if they see part of a trilobite inside, they will glue the rock back together and then carefully prepare the trilobite out of the rock. It's the fact that they are encapsulated in rock that allows them to often find trilobites with great anatomical details preserved. Many of these repairs are difficult to see or are inconspicuous, but some are easily seen. Please inspect the photos carefully or email me for additional details about this fossil. This is a great piece for any collection! | We have a variety of trilobites available so be sure to check out our other listings!
