3D, 2.55" Asaphus Punctatus Trilobite - Russia

 
 
 
This is a very 3D, Asaphus punctatus quarried in the St. Petersburg region of Russia. It is presented on a nicely sculpted piece of limestone and looks like it's about to crawl off of the rock. The base of the rock is cut flat so that it display aesthetically in a vertical orientation on a flat surface.

Like nearly all of the trilobites from this region there is some shell restoration to replace shell that flakes off when the rock is broken during collection. There's a fair amount of shell restoration on this specimen 15-20%, hence the lower price.
