Massive Trilobite Plaque
Acadoparodoxides
Cambrian
Tikniouine, Anti-Atlas, Morocco

Over the last decade, Morocco has become famous for its amazing array of trilobites. This rare massive plate, featuring over 15 large, complete and partial, Acadoparadoxides trilobites, represents one of the finest totally natural assemblages ever to emerge from North Africa. The mere size and orientation distinguish this natural plaque. This is a piece that will appeal equally to the advanced collector and to those who have a keen eye for especially attractive fossil pieces. A cataclysmic event was responsible for the sudden death and burial of this mass of creatures. Every specimen is natural and unrestored. Matrix measures ____________; Largest trilobite measures 13 1/2in
