Very 3D 2.8 Inch Asaphus Punctatus Trilobite

 
 
 
 
 
This is a 2.8 inch long Asaphus punctatus trilobite from the St. Petersburg region of Russia. It is beautifully preserved, very 3 dimensional and the preparation work to extract it from it's limestone tomb is wonderfully done.

Like nearly all trilobites from these sites in Russia it does have some restoration work done, approximately 5% of of the shell. The restoration is on the left side of the head, the left eye and parts of the first two thorasic segments.
