The only matrix present is on its ventral side. One of the eyes is damaged while the other has amazing detail. A preserving gloss has been put in this trilobite to bring out its dark colors. The left cheek has been reconstructed as it was missing. It is circled in red.
Some other parts of the trilobite have been restored as well, which is sometimes expected due to the massive size of the specimen. I estimate 4%-6% restoration, as well as the reconstructed cheek. A great a unique specimen overall!Length: approximately 5 inches (12.7 cm). Width: approximately 2.5 inches (6.35 cm).
