With its rich red-orange hues and large natural limestone rock plate, this is an incredibly aesthetic display fossil of two Asaphus trilobites. The stone plate is approximately 2 inches thick and features a natural back and natural sides, with a natural face on parts of the display side. Both trilobites are fully inflated with excellent detail and stunning, red natural hues, complimenting the surrounding red and warm butter yellow limestone in which they were found.
This is a large display piece that is unique due to the colors and size. Perfect for any interior setting and of an uncommon color compared to what is usually found on the market.
