This was found and cleaned by trilobite expert Markus Marin. Because of his vast knowledge and skill this trilobite is prepared beautifully.

Markus is known world over because of his knowledge of these fossils. And he has been digging trilobites and other fossils around the country and the world. Because of some of his finds were so special, he has published many papers on the subject of trilobites. And these Two Zacanthoides trilobites were found in the Chisolm Shale of Nevada. So this piece may become the showpiece of anyone’s collection.
