Product description

This is a Drotops trilobite, discovered in Erfoud, Morocco.

It dates from the Cambrian/Devonian Periods, 560 to 360 million years old.

Trilobites ("three-lobes") are extinct arthropods that form the class Trilobita. They appeared in the Middle Cambrian epoch and flourished throughout the lower Paleozoic era before beginning a drawn-out decline to extinction when, during the Late Devonian extinction, all trilobite orders, with the sole exception of Proetida, died out.
The last of the trilobites disappeared in the mass extinction at the end of the Permian about 250 million years ago

A highly unusual gift idea.

Size:  2.25" (5.7cms) long
