Rough Calymene Trilobite Fossil
Rough Calymene Trilobite Fossil from Morocco
100% Authentic Calymene trilobite fossils from the Anti-Atlas Region of Morocco. These fairly common and inexpensive trilobites are preserved as internal molds within the sandstone formation.
Trilobites were a diverse group of extinct marine arthropods. They first appeared in the fossil record around 521 million years ago (Early Cambrian) and went extinct approximately 250 million years ago during the Permian mass extinction. They were one of the most successful of the early animals on our planet with over 25,000 species currently described species. Their hard exoskeleton or shell ensured that they left an excellent fossil record.
These fossils are not perfect, some are missing parts and some are glued together where they broke when extracted.
