    Freestanding Kettneraspis sp. perfect Fossil Trilobite. Devonian. Foum Zguid. Morocco. A Must Have!

    Restoration details: No restoration. 100% natural "flying" freestanding spines specimen. Gorgeous natural brown colour from Jbel Gara el Zguilma (Foum Zguid).

    The freestanding display of the spines in Devonian trilobites, one of our specialities, is a laborious and very skilled work of dozens (sometimes hundreds) of laboratory hours, just accessible to very few people in all the world.

    Foum Zguid / Jbel Gar El Zguilma quarries are now off limits to collecting due to military presence near Moroccan/Algerian border. Perfect specimens from there, like this one, will be scarce next years.

    Dimensions: Specimen: 3,5 x 3,0 cm; Matrix: 11,0 x 8,2 cm.

    Finding location: Jbel Gara el Zguilma, Anti-Atlas Mountains, Morocco.

    Taxonomy - Species: Kettneraspis sp. Family: Odontopleuridae. Order: Lichida. Class: Trilobita.

    Geological Period: Devonian, from Paleozoic Era.
