.85" Transluscent Basseiarges Trilobite - Jorf, Morocco
This is a nice, .85" specimen of Basseiarges from Jorf, Morocco. The shell on this specimen is pretty translucent, so the red/brown coloration of the rock shows through. It was prepared by the best preparitor in Morocco and the detail and preparation quality is exceptional. The trilobites from Jorf are particularly hard to prepared because the rock is partially metamorphised, very hard and has an almost glass-like quality to it. This is one of the rarer species from the location.
