Here is your chance to own a classic fossil from a classic site. A nice showy piece as well
HARDER and Harder to obtain fossils from this private quarry in Middleport, New York
Classic trilobite from the famous Rochester Shale Silurian Deposits of New York. These are becoming extremely rare from this site. This one has approx 10 % repair and restoration. The tip of the cephalon and one genal spine have been restored.
Unfortunately these DALMANITES trilobites are becoming more rare as this quarry is beginning to play out. These were recently prepared in our prep lab from a decades old stack of unprepared fossils from the Middleport Quarry.
Here is a great example of the trilobites coming from this classic and well known site. The DALMANITES limulurus trilobite from this location exhibit outstanding detail. They normally are preserved with a rich black color on a dark gray or gray matrix. Many from this site are also preserved with outstanding inflated carapaces that make these trilobites very showy. The DALMANITES exhibits GREAT detail.
The DALMANITES trilobite 2 7/8 inches long to the tip of the pygidial spine. It sits on a gray matrix 3 1/2 by 4 inches.
