This is the kind of trilobite that every collector dreams about! It is a beautiful Triarthrus eatoni from the Lorraine Group, Whetstone Gulf Formation of upstate New York. This amazing trilobite was prepared slowly, hoping against hope to expose some soft parts of the trilobite. Although only one in hundreds(?) of trilobites in general have traces of soft parts preserved, this specimen was one of the lucky ones! A very distinct grouping of appendages are exposed - these legs are VERY EASILY seen in the photos and with the naked eye. There is also a beautiful segmented antenna preserved. There have been very, very few trilobites ever found in the fossil record with this much detail of the delicate soft parts. This is a very collectible example of a trilobite displaying a rarely-seen appendages and antenna.
