Collected and prepared by World Famous Trilobite Expert, Markus Martin.

This is an exceptional OLENELLUS chiefensis that exhibits superb detail. It is a rare and perfect example and still has the calcite shell intact. 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 OLENELLUS measures 2.5 cm and is superbly inflated and detailed exquisitely.
