Large 3.4" Asaphus Punctatus Trilobite

 
 
 
This is a large example of the stalked eyed trilobite Asaphus punctatus. At 3.4" long it quite large for the species, is laid out nice and prone and is beautifully preserved. The preparation work to remove the limestone surrounding it was very well done. It comes from the Gostlitsy Quarry in the t. Petersburg region of Russia.

Like nearly all of the trilobites from this region there is some shell restoration to replace shell that flakes off when the rock is broken during collection. There is a small patch of restoration in the center of the head, the center of the tail and along a repaired crack through the left hand side of the trilobite. About 8-10% total.
