Rare spiny trilobite in matrix
A wonderfully crisp example of a Ketternaspsis spp. spiny trilobite in matrix, from Morocco. Devonian era, so about 400 million years old, just mind bogglingly ancient.
Spiny trilobites from the Devonian are not easy to find, so this is an excellent piece for a natural history enthusiast looking for a less than ordinary trilobite specimen for their curio shelf.
There is a neatly repaired crack in the matrix, otherwise stunning for it's age, and a fantastic addition to any well curated bookshelf or natural history cabinet.
