Fantastic Comura Trilobite - No Restoration

 
 
 
 
 
 
This is an excellently prepared and example of the super spiny trilobite Comura bultyncki from Morocco. There is over 40 free standing spines on this specimen, and they eyes are very detailed. The preparation on a trilobite such as this would have taken on the order of 40-50 hours by a very skilled preparator. This specimen is much better than most of the Comura that you see for sale, many of which have reconstructed spines.

It's not the largest example of the species but it is in great shape and has ZERO restoration work done to it.
