EXTINCTIONS CHOICE - Two Fine WRQ Ceraurus
Stock Number  WRC918
EXTINCTIONS Choice

Name:   Ceraurus pleurexanthemus
Age:  Upper Ordovician
Formation:  Rust Formation, Trenton Group
Location:  Walcott-Rust Quarry, Trenton Falls, New York
Size:  Plate is 5.3 inches across
Price:  $495.00



This is a fabulous pair of Ceraurus pleurexanthemus from the famous Walcott-Rust Quarry (WRQ) near Trenton Falls, New York. This type is one of the original trilobites that Charles D. Walcott and James Hall made famous well over a century ago! Both specimens on the plate have their free cheeks and eyes intact, which is quite unusual. The trilobites have very good detail preserved, showcasing the pustulated, thick shell exoskeletons well. The bugs are very well displayed on the squared limestone plate that also contains other fossils - fully natural, no compositing! Anyone who knows anything about the history of US trilobites knows how important a piece like this is. This is a top quality double example of classic Ceraurus pleurexanthemus trilobites from New York State.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
