Description:

Presented is a big perfect specimen of Asaphellus aff. fezouatensis with a very special strong red colouration. The exoskeleton and full perfect counterpart are untouched.

The gorgeous red colours of the iron oxides of this very particular geological layer are extremely well preserved. They are due to the replacement of the original cuticular substances by ferritic minerals. In Fezouata shales, these colours can vary from yellow to orange or even the strong red.   

The Fezouata Shale has been compared to the very well know Burgess Shale, in North America. In fact, it is, in late years, a prolific area in fossil discoveries that changed the fossil taxonomy of several groups of organisms and that helped to better understand the evolution of all life on Earth.


Not only several trilobite species have been newly documented there. Some other Arthropods (like the famous Anomalocarids), soft-bodied creatures (like  Furca sp. and others) and Echinoderms are other important groups found and studied from there, among thousands of species.
