Small Gerastos Trilobite From Morocco

 
 
 
Here's an inexpensive of the Proetida trilobite Gerastos tuberculatus from the Middle Devonian of Morocco. The Proetidae family of trilobites was the last group to go extinct at the end of the Permain period. This specimen has nice black shell and is presented on a "pedestal" of sculpted, natural matrix.

I purchased this trilobite partially prepared and finished the preparation under microscope using air abrasives to reveal the wonderful shell detail including it's very granulose cephalon (head) and the hundreds of tiny eye facets. There is no restoration on this specimen.
