2" Tower-Eyed, Spiny Erbenochile Trilobite - Jbel Ou Driss, Morocco

 
 
 
 
This is a 2" long, tower-eyed, Erbenochile trilobite from a very unusual location. Nearly all of the Erbenochile come from near Foum Zguid but this one was quarried near Jbel Ou Driss, Morocco. The rock is much harder at this location, and more time consuming to prepare.

The detail is stunning, with excellent eye facet preservation in both eyes, and not only the axial spines free standing but the dozens upon dozens of tiny spines covering the thorax and tail are preserved. There is only about 2% shell restoration along repaired cracks on the left hand side of the tail.
