Two Jet Black Reedops Trilobites - Morocco

Here is a pair of highly detailed jet-black Reedops trilobites fossils from Morocco. The larger specimen would be about 2.7" long (if outstretched) and there is a smaller, enrolled specimen laying on top of it. Excellent preparation on this piece. There is no restoration on either trilobite.

Trilobites were a very diverse group of extinct marine arthropods. They first appeared in the fossil record in the Early Cambrian (521 million years ago) and went extinct during the Permian mass extinction (250 million years ago). They were one of the most successful of the early animals on our planet with over 25k currently described species, filling nearly every evolutionary niche. Due in large part to a hard exoskeleton (shell), they left an excellent fossil record.
