Stalked Eyed Asaphus Trilobite - 1.73"

 
 
 
 
 
Here is a stalked eyed Asaphus kowalewskii trilobite that looks like it is ready to crawl off the plate. It was collected from the Vilpovitsy quarry near St. Petersburg Russia. Out of the dozens of described Asaphus species kowalewskii has the longest eye stalks which is would have used like a periscope to look around while staying safely buried in the mud.

This specimen is 1.73" long and was prepared very nicely. It displays well on the matrix that has been sculpted to create a free standing display. It has very minimal restoration compared to most trilobites from these quarries, just a tiny patch of shell on the right ride of the head about 1%
