This is a special trilobite fossil. It is a beautifully sculpted specimen of Hollardops mesocristata from the Devonian of Morocco. This fine specimen was meticulously prepared under a microscope in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab here in Colorado. The trilobite is very 3-D and extremely inflated. The wonderfully articulated bug is superbly preserved and exhibits excellent detail. The crescent-shaped compound eyes are beautifully displayed and practically flawless. The black trilobite contrasts extremely well with the light-colored, sculpted limestone. But wait, there's more! The pygidium (tail) of this critter has been prepared from BOTH SIDES - the back side of the tail has also been prepared! The tailspines are free-standing and only have the thin SHELL intact - there is no rock to obscure its features! The delicate preparation needed to preform this miracle is simply incredible - how many prep artists could pull this off? This is easily one of the most amazing examples of Hollardops we have ever prepared.
