This is an excellent spiny trilobite plate. It is a fabulous pair of Ampyx priscus from the Ordovician of Morocco. These trilobites are REAL, unlike most of the Moroccan Ampyx specimens on the market that have carved-in and painted spines. The trilobites are wonderfully articulated and exhibit excellent detail. The dark orange color of the trilobites contrasts superbly with the light-colored matrix. The fossils are natural to the plate and not composited. The bugs are beautifully showcased on the large, squared plate of shale. And, again, these trilobites are REAL! This is an extremely nice pair of Ampyx priscus from Morocco - one of the few multiple plates that has not been faked in some way.
A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
