    Got this Gerastos granulosus trilobite today. It's from the Devonian about 400 million years ago. Had one that was about a 7 and this one is a good 10. Perfect eyes and preservation .excellent preservation and preparation with no restoration.

    My friend gave me store-bought gift. Assumed was replica?

      Very nice specimen! What a treasure trove Morroco is, for fossils, for meteorites, Neolithic points, just a wonderland. Trilobites will always be my first love:

        Nice fossil! That's really cool!
