1.2" Undescribed Proetid Trilobite From Jorf - Very Inflated

 
 
 
This is a very inflated,, 1.2" long Proetid trilobite from Jorf, Morocco. As far as I can tell these proetids from Jorf are currently undescribed. IThe preparation is good, considering how hard the glass-like rock from this location is to prepare. They are certainly not common trilobites, but many of the proetids from Morocco which are found by the dozens. We only found a handful of them in 3 days of digging at the site with several diggers when I dug the site. The shell of the trilobite is translucent so that it takes on the reddish color of the rock below.
