Awesome Asaphus Expansus 2.6 Inches

 
 
Here is one of the more uncommon species of Asaphus from the Wolchow River region of Russia. It's a 2.6 inch Asaphus expansus which has be masterfully prepared and is very three dimensional. This beautiful carmel colored trilobite contrasts well with the white lime matrix it rests on. It's an impressive example of this uncommon trilobite that would look great in any collection.

Like almost all Russian asaphus trilobites this specimen does have some shell restoration, probably about 5%. The restoration is along a repaired crack on the right hand side of the body and some patches of shell on both sides of the head. This work is expertly done and does not diminish from this great specimen.
