Large, 3.85" Huntonia Trilobite - Black Cat Mountain, Oklahoma
This is a beautiful, caramel colored, 3.85" long Huntonia huntonensis from the famous Black Cat Mountain quarry near Clarita, Oklahoma. This is one of the more uncommon species found at the quarry and it you have to break a lot of rock to find a complete one. This one is quite large for the species at over 3 1/2" long.
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.
