Here is a nice trilobite that we recently prepared. It is a Calymene breviceps from the Waldron Shale of Indiana. The inflated trilobite is wonderfully articulated and exhibits great detail. Both free cheeks are present, which is somewhat unusual for this type. The triangular pygidium is intact, the small eyes are quite evident, and the pustulose glabella is easily seen from both sides of the plate! The outstretched bug has gorgeous, natural coloration and is well showcased on the large plate of shale. This is a fine, outstretched example of Calymene breviceps from the Silurian.
This fossil was collected and obtained legally, and is also being sold legally.
