Trilobite-Holy Grail Of Rochester Shale Trilobites-Dicranopeltis-Crinoid-Top 1%:
Offered here is a trilobite that comes around once in a lifetime. A beautifully prepared, totally prone, top 1% in quality Dicranopeltis nereus trilobite from the Rochester Shale Formation of Orleans County, New York, Silurian in age. The trilobite measures about 2 1/4” long and is absolutely stunning. The pustules on this trilobite are amazing. There is even a Stegerhynchus brachiopod attached. I won’t charge you extra for that. Also, look at the healed bite mark on the pygidium. Look on commercial fossil websites and the ones they offer, if you can even find one, to be 100% honest, are crap. This took in excess of 50 hours to prepare, not 10 hours. The last one I saw for sale of this quality was $12,000 and that was 15 or so years ago. It sold to a collector in Japan. In the past I tried to purchase the finest specimens available from different locations and now I’m just focusing in on specific areas allowing rare and unavailable specimens of the finest quality to go. You just don’t see specimens of this quality and preservation for sale anymore. It was prepared by one of the best in the business and meticulously prepared out of a solid piece of hard shale. Don’t miss out as there are no others like this on the market for sale. If you have purchased multiple items, please do not send payment until I send an invoice.
