11.5" Wide, Austerops Trilobite Mortality Plate - Jorf

 
 
 
 
 
 
This is a mortality plate of 11 good sized Austerops trilobites, collected near Jorf, Morocco. Most of the phacopids you see from the locality are much smaller in size with the trilobites on this plate averaging about 2 inches in length.

The rock from the Jorf area is extremely hard with almost a glass-like texture to it. This makes it very time consuming to prepare compared to other localities. Dozens and dozens of hours of prep work went into this piece. A true one of a kind, museum quality display piece!
