This is an amazing slab of trilobites from the Ordovician of Russia. There are SEVEN Asaphus (Neoasaphus) kowalewskii trilobites scattered about the plate This specimen was acquired from the Richard Busch Collection, who originally acquired it from the Chance Collection. Busch was the Preparator/Asst. Curator at the North Museum in Lancaster, PA from 1965-1992. Again, there are SEVEN extremely well preserved Asaphus (Neoasaphus) kowalewskii trilobites (and three brachiopods) preserved on the slab. The trilobites are very 3-dimensional and wonderfully articulated. The LONG, stalked eyes, their definitive feature, are very easily seen. All of the trilobites have gorgeous, natural coloration that contrasts well with the light-colored matrix. The arthropods are beautifully showcased on the HUGE (SEVENTEEN INCHES ACROSS!) block of limestone that is one entire, unbroken piece! This is a spectacular display piece that was once a part of both the Chance and the Busch Collections.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
