This dark brown-red Asaphus trilobite is a nice, large example that is much more complete than typical. The genal spines are authentic and there is none of the usual fabrication. 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. If you have always been wanting to add a large Ordovician asaphid trilobite from North Africa, this is a great candidate.
