This is a spectacular, colorful asaphid trilobite with EXCEPTIONAL preservation. It is complete and with full inflation. The genal spines are authentic and there is none of the usual fabrication or combination of multiple trilobite parts, as is often seen in these fossils. Only cracks were filled due to the repairs sustained from extraction, which is unavoidable in these trilobites and the nature in how they are found.
