"Flying" Paralejurus Trilobite Fossil - Natural Work Of Art

 
 
 
This is a stunning example of the Corynexochid trilobite Paralejurus which has been prepared so that it "flys" on a thin pedestal of limestone. This style of preparation is extremely time consuming to do using air scribes and air abrasives. A true natural, work of art.

The trilobite was quarried from the Middle Devonian deposits near Foum Zguid, Morocco. It has excellent shell detail and under magnification you can even see the thousands of tiny eye facets in it's eyes. There is no restoration on the specimen.
