These “Red Bed” Trilobites exhibit superb detail and are exceptionally inflated.
Elrathia kingii is one of the most well known and recognizable trilobites. However “Red Bed” trilobites are more rare. Here is a very nice 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.
This block measures 3.75 inches by 3 inches and includes many parts of other trilobites but beautifully displays two ELRATHIA kingii. The larger measuring .71 inch by .51 inch and the smaller measures .39 inch by .31 inch.
The trilobite comes in a protective black foam block.
