Very 3D Gerastos Trilobite From Morocco

 
 
 
Here's a nice example of the small Proetida trilobite Gerastos tuberculatus. The Proetidae family of trilobites was the last group to go extinct at the end of the Permain period. This specimen has nice black shell and is presented on a "pedestal" of sculpted, natural matrix.

I purchased this trilobite partially prepared and finished the preparation under microscope using air abrasives to reveal the wonderful shell detail including it's very granulose cephalon (head). There is some minor restoration on the right side of the tail.
