Here is a wonderful plate of trilobites from the Middle Cambrian of Utah. There are two specimens of Elrathia kingi on this plate - one has free cheeks intact, one does not. Both of these trilobites are natural to the plate - no compositing or addition of trilobites has been done to this specimen. The Elrathia are very detailed and display well. The black color of the trilobites contrasts beautifully with the grey matrix. This is a very nice double specimen of trilobites from the Wheeler Shale.
A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
