This is a real, incredible, amalgamation of Hollardops mesocristata trilobites from the Lower Devonian of Ofaten, Morocco!
This amazing ~8" tall piece of prehistoric seabed was carved down to reveal 9 fossil trilobites hidden within, creating a beautiful and museum-quality display piece.
Resembling horseshoe crabs, trilobites are an extinct group of arthropods that died off in the Permian mass extinction ~252 million years ago.
They were one of the most successful and iconic of all early animals - spreading across most of the globe and surviving for an incredible 270 million years!
