Ceraurus pleurexanthemus Trilobite from Walcott Rust Quarry

Geological Time: Upper Ordovician

Size: 37 mm

Fossil Site: Trenton Group, Walcott – Rust Quarry, Gray’s Brook, Russia, New York

CeraurusDescription: This is a beautifully preserved and prepared specimen with an incredible provenance. It is naturally black against the mottled gray background and is about 98% complete. It is inflated and fully 3D with absolutely no enhancement or restoration. The matrix in the upper left hand part was broken and re-glued. This in no way affected the actual specimen. It was collected at the world famous Walcott – Rust Quarry site. It came from an old collection that I obtained a few specimens from recently, 11/07. This specimen deserves a prominent position in whatever collection it ends up. Please visit the Walcott – Rust Quarry website for a comprehensive history and detailed paleontology of this amazing discovery site.
