Multiple Trilobite Mortality Specimen
Learn More

We assumed this well prepared mortality piece was a composite, with at least one specimen added. However, we were told that's not the case and thateah trilobite has been prepared in the matrix, in the positions as we see them. We still have a small doubt. But, we've no doubt that the trilobites are of exceptional quality and meticulously prepared. There was a matrix fracture that has been stabilized and to us is not a big deal, as the piece itself if fantastic. The piece was prepared by the individual who made its discovery. Specimens like these once were prepared exclusively in the United States or Europe. However, now that Morocco has a much more stabilized energy grid, they do excellent preparation in their own country.

With matrix:
~6" x 5" x 3"-1/2" x 7"
