1.8" Bug-Eyed Coltraneia Trilobite - Great Eye Detail

 
 
 
 
This is a gorgoues Coltraneia trilobite with amazing "tower eyes" full of hundreds of eye facets. The species has often been referred to as a Treveropyge in the past. Most of the specimens that you see have a dark colored shell and are quarried at Ofaten but this one has a light brown shell and was collected near Issoumour, Morocco.

The specimen is arched over but would be about 1.8" long if outstretched. Amazing eye facets and great shell detail. It is nicely prepared and displays wonderfully. Only about 1% restoration along the repaired crack running through it's head.
