Insane Boedaspis Trilobite - Incredible Preparation

 
 
 
 
 
 
This is an elegant example of a very rare Boedapsis, one of the most spectacular trilobite species in the world. It is a "dream trilobite" from many trilobite and fossil collectors. Not only are they very rare, but they take nearly a month of preparation time (100-200 hours) by a master trilobite preparitor to complete. It's 2.35" long, laid out prone and has with all of it's spines totally free of the surrounding limestone.

This prone specimen is simply breathtaking with its pustulose, butterscotch colored exoskeleton, and long flowing spines. Restoration work is minimal, with just some restoration on a few of the segments near the tail. A true museum piece!
