Just look at the detail in this plate collected and prepared by World Famous Trilobite Expert, Markus Martin.
This trilobite is a difficult one to ID. It is a museum quality ALOKISTOCARD. This is an exceptional trilobite that exhibits superb detail. It is exceptionally inflated. Please look closely at the exquisite detail.
Here is a quite rare and very desirable trilobite from the Cambrian Period, the “Age of Trilobites.” They lived, thrived, and became extinct MILLIONS of years before the age of dinosaurs! Trilobites spanned a time that covered 5 geological periods spanning over 300 million years of Earth’s history.
The trilobite is 3/8 Inches long on an irregular piece of matrix 2 by 1 3/4 inches. It is superbly inflated and detailed exquisitely. The negative is also included.
