Huge Illaenus Tauricornis Trilobite (REDUCED PRICE)

 
 
 
 
 
 
This is a huge example of Illaenus tauricornis at just under 3 inches long. It's extremely well inflated and nicely prepared with it's genal spines free-standing so that they "fly" above the rock.

Like nearly all trilobites from these quarries there is some shell restoration due to shell that flakes off during collection when the rock is broken or weathering. There is about 7% shell restoration on this specimen, mainly patches of shell on the head and center of tail.
