11.5" Wide Austerops Trilobite Mortality Plate - Jorf (Reduced Price)

 
 
 
 
 
 
This is a mortality plate of 11 good-sized Austerops trilobites, collected near Jorf, Morocco. Most of the phacopids you see from the locality are much smaller in size with the trilobites on this plate averaging about 2 inches in length.

The rock from the Jorf area is extremely hard with almost a glass-like texture to it. This makes it very time consuming to prepare compared to other localities. Dozens and dozens of hours of prep work went into this piece. A true one of a kind, museum quality display piece!
