About The Prize

The prize is an authentic "trident nosed" Walliserops trifurcatus trilobite from the Devonian of Morocco. The bizarre trident has been prepared free standing, as well as all 40 of the spines along it's back. There is very minimal restoration to the trilobite, just some minor touchups to fix some shell damaged during collection and preparation. 40+ hours of preparation work under microscope went into cleaning this gorgeous specimen.

If your curious on how spines like that are preserved after nearly 400 million years, this blog post will answer your question.
