No restoration, no composition, no displaced parts rearranged.
One of the most beloved trilobites from Morocco, with an also mythical history.
In the Mrakib quarry, it is extremely rare to find complete individuals like this one. Maybe no other individual like this one will ever be found, Extractions realities are quickly changing in Morocco and difficult quarries will be abandoned in a near future.
Long spines and a unique morphology identify this jewel from Moroccan trilobites. This one has been prepared with the pygidial spines freestanding and the final display resulted astonishing. With more than 8 cm, it is one of the biggest specimens ever found. A perfect museum specimen.
The astonishing images speak for themselves. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
