This is a remarkable collectors piece, a large Trilobite fossil which has been perfectly split and comes with both halves. This piece is of an impressive size and will make a striking display piece.
Trilobites form one of the earliest known groups of arthropods and thrived for over 270 million years. More than 20,000 individual species of trilobites have been documented and are well know to be among the first species ever to develop complex eyes. Trilobites survived several extinction events but eventually completely disappeared in a mass extinction at the end of the Permian era 250 million years ago.
