Cheirurus and Paralejurus Age: Devonian Formation: AM Limestone Location: Morocco Size: Cheirurus is over 3 inches long Price:SOLD
This is a fantastic trilobite double from the Devonian of Morocco. There are two different types of trilobites on the block. Both trilobites are natural to the piece - there has been no compositing done to this magnificent specimen. A beautifully outstretched Paralejurus hamlagdadicus is on the top of the block. This 3-dimensional trilobite has the brims of both the head and tail prepared in a free-standing manner for optimal display. At the bottom of the block is a very inflated and 3-D Cheirurus (Crotalocephalina) gibbus. The sharp tailspines have all been prepared in a free-standing manner, which is quite striking. Both trilobites have excellent detail preserved. The colorful trilobites contrast well with the lighter-colored matrix. The large bugs are beautifully showcased on the sculpted block of dense limestone. This is an outstanding display specimen of two different trilobites that has been artfully prepared to its maximum potential.
A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
