This is an awesome Spiny Quadrops Trilobite. It is a rare and unique species. This trilobite is in excellent condition and has no restoration or paint that I can see. The trilobite itself measures 3 3/4 inches in length.It dates back to the Devonian time period approximately 390 million years ago. This trilobite is from Morocco, North Africa. I handpicked it myself and was careful to choose specimens with no restoration or paint, including this piece. 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 the rock that allows them to often find trilobites with great anatomical details preserved. This is a great piece for any collection! Included with the trilobite is a nice color information card.
