Very Nice Illaenus Oblongatus Trilobite - 3D

 
 
 
This is an exquisitely preserved example Illaenus oblongatus collected near St. Petersburg Russia. This 460 million year old trilobite looks like it is ready to crawl off of the rock thanks to some masterful preparation work. This specimen would help round out any trilobite collection.

Like essentially all Russian trilobites this one does have restoration to fix damage that occurred during collection but it is pretty minimal. Just a small patch of shell on the front of the head and two pleural tips on the right hand side. Maybe 2-3% total.
