Spectacular "Flying" Zlichovaspis Trilobite - 1.6"

 
 
 
 
 
Here is a killer Zlichovaspis rugosa trilobite that has been expertly prepared in a "flying" pose. The prep work on this piece is FANTASTIC with all the microscopic surface details on the exoskeleton present. All of the dozens facets in the segmented eyes can easily be seen. The trilobite is slightly arched which causes the genal spines which have been prepared free of the matrix to stick upwards at a 45 degree angle. A very beautiful and impressive specimen. Part of the right genal spine has been restored.
