Very 3D 2.35" Asaphus Lepidurus Trilobite - Russia

This is a good-sized specimen of the Ordovician trilobite Asaphus lepidurus. It was collected from the Putilovo quarry in the St. Petersburg region of Russia. It's just over 2.35" long and is very 3D The rock has been sawed flat at the base so that it displays aesthetically without the need for a display stand.

Like nearly all of the trilobites from these layers there is some shell restoration as the shell tends to flake during collection. It is less than the typical specimen though. There is a patch of shell restoration on the left side of the head, about 3%.
