Austerops Trilobite Mortality Plate From Jorf - 40 Individuals!

 
 
 
 
 
This is an incredible, mass mortality plate of beautifully, colored Austerops trilobites, collected near Jorf, Morocco. There is 40 complete or near complete individuals and many partials on this plate measuring 11.5" in wide. The specimens average about 1.2" in length and have wonderful shell detail including visible eye facets. There is also a head of a Cyphaspides present right in the center of the plate.

The rock from the Jorf area is extremely hard with almost a glass-like texture to it. This makes it very time consuming to prepare compared to other localities. Dozens and dozens of hours of prep work went into this piece. A true one of a kind, museum quality display piece!
