Cute Baby Kainops Trilobite - Black Cat Mountain
This is a beautiful, juvenile specimen of Kainops raymondi from the famous Black Cat Mountain trilobite quarry near Clarita, Oklahoma. While it's small at .55" long it has amazing surface detail including the many eye facets preserved in each eye. The preparation work, done by the master himself, Bob Carroll is amazing.
The Black Cat Mountain Quarry produces a limited number of arguably the most beautiful trilobites in the United States each year. Each specimen is meticulously prepared by Bob Carroll under microscope to expose the smallest details. This is a very time consuming process taking many hours but yields spectacular results.
