We just launched our new wholesale areas. Check out the wholesale fossils, minerals & crystals section for more listings. Very little of the wholesale inventory that we currently have in stock is listed on the website. If there is something specific you are looking for, or if you are looking to purchase different quantities, please contact us at email@example.com or (866) 550-2013This is a wholesale flat of 50 bargain Gerastos trilobites from Morocco. The trilobites range from .7 to 1.3" long and while many of prone some are enrolled of partially enrolled. The preparation is very rough, hence the bargain price, but they are authentic fossils and none look like they have any restoration.
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 described species, filling nearly every evolutionary niche. Due in large part to a hard exoskeleton (shell), they left a excellent fossil record.
