Description
Trilobite - On matrix - Phacops rana crassituberculata
Middle Devonian, Moscú Formation, Hamilton Group - Erie County, Nueva York State,USA

Spectacular trilobite, 3-D prone example. Phacops is particularly known for his schizochroal eyes. This type of trilobite eye typically has fewer lenses, but they are much larger, each lens is separate from its neighbors, and it has an individual cornea.The details to this specimen are readily evident in the photos.
The eyes are partially pyritized, in this deposit it is typical, due to the mineralogical contribution of the sediments. 100% natural fossil, my pieces are sandblasted clean, this is how we take out all the details and do not damage the most fragile parts.
