This is a magnificent LARGE Middle Devonian trilobite specimen of. From Djebel Issoumour in Morocco. Resembles a very large Phacops.The eyes have extremely well-preserved schizochroal lenses and the tubercules on the cephalon are pronounced. The specimen is approximately 3.77 inches long and 2.22 inches wide. The matrix and trilobite measure 5.0 inches long, 3.87 inches wide and 2.2 inches high. The color variation was the result of different minerals in the surrounding water during fossilization. The trilobite has been repaired from in front of the right eye and across the thorax.
In the trilobite-collecting world this is not a detriment. Trilobites are found by smashing open rocks and the specimens often get broken as a result. It is rare to find an entire, unbroken trilobite. Many sellers do not disclose that their fossils have been repaired as the repair is often very well done, and virtually undetectable.
I believe in full disclosure. All of my fossils are guaranteed authentic and have been legally obtained.
