Two Large Paralejurus Trilobites - Beautiful Display

 
 
 
 
This is a very aesthetic piece association of two LARGE Paralejurus trilobites from Issoumour, Morocco. The larger specimen is 3.2" long which is one of the largest I've seen of the species. It has been beautifully prepared, and the shell of both trilobites has great detail including the distinctive terrace lines on the pygidium and hundreds of tiny eye facets. The hard limestone matrix has been sculpted to create a beautiful, free-standing display.

There is some minor shell restoration, mainly to repair some missing flakes of shell along the repaired cracks through the tail of the trilobites and the edge of the tail on the smaller trilobites. Probably 2-3% in total shell restoration.
