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 sliver of this history measures 4.75 inches by 1.50 inches. A beautifully inflated Elrathia measuring 1.03 inches by .74 inch. Complete eye catcher and great natural contrast to the matrix.
The trilobite comes in a protective black foam block.
