Product Description

Trilobites are well-known, and possibly the second-most famous fossil group after the dinosaurs . Trilobites first appeared in the Cambrian period c.570 million years agoand disappeared in the mass extinction at the end of the Permian period about 250 million years ago. These Calymene Trilobite Fossils from Morrocco are c.360 million years old. They make unique and beautiful gifts for all ages. Trilobites were a group of Arthropods, segmented bodies and limbs, with hard shells. Extinct today, over 15000 species have been classified to date, ranging in size fron 1mm - 700mm long This beautifully preserved fossil will look great as an ornament in the home, or as an addition to a fossil collection . Own a prehistoric piece that existed before the dinosaurs!

I bought this as a Christmas gift, but my son caught a glimpse of it as we unpacked it. His eyes went wide and he exclaimed " that looks like something in a museum". It honestly does. This is the largest fossil he owns ( roughly 2.5 ") and the quality is really unbelievable. This really is collectors or museum quality - not the type of item you usually find at this price or use to fill a child's fossil collection. I'm away to see what else this seller has, but if you are looking for an exceptional fossil, either for a child or an adult collector - this is it.

Great example. Just like photo, but bigger than I expected. Like the other review, the fossil fills your palm. Bit of a creepy creature, luckily it comes in a sealed plastic display case, just in case it comes alive at night.

I bought one of these for my ten-year-old son for Christmas. Unfortunately after only a week in the wardrobe it has died. It won't play with the ball of wool I bought it & isn't even interested in a saucer of milk. It just lies in its basket by the fire staring at me banefully. I think the care instructions should really have said what food it required - although I'm not sure it was my fault because the packaging didn't have any air holes. One very disappointed boy, who wanted a live trilobite for Christmas. I'm going back to the idea of getting him a ferret.

I actually thought this was going to be one of the tiny fossils they usually sell online but it is actually of considerable size (about as big as my palm), and weight

I bought one of these Calymene Trilobite fossils as a gift for an enthusiast. After a week or so it broke in half at which point it was clear to say it was stuck together with glue.

I bought these for my nephew who is into fossils. He was delighted with them and insisted on taking them to school to show his teacher. I would certainly recommend them.

Beautiful fossil, I've wanted a trilobite for a long time and this one does not disappoint! It's good quality for the price and is a decent size - mine is 7×5×2 cm
