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.
Matrix measuring 3.5 inches by 3.25 inches holds this large Elrathia kingii measuring 1.06 inches by .78 inches. The other part that has been prepped are parts of other trilobites that were found, no noticeable parts.
The trilobite comes in a protective black foam block.
