Wholesale Lot: Bargain Gerastos Trilobite Fossils - 29 Pieces
We just launched our new wholesale areas. Check out the wholesale fossils, minerals & crystals section for more listings. Very little of the wholesale inventory that we currently have in stock is listed on the website. If there is something specific you are looking for, or if you are looking to purchase different quantities, please contact us at [email protected] or (866) 550-2013This is a wholesale flat of 29 bargain trilobite specimens from Morocco. Most are of the genus Gerastos but there are also a few reedops. The trilobites range from .6 to 1.2" long and some of the 29 pieces have multiple trilobites on them. The preparation is a bit rough hence the bargain price and some may have some minor restoration. It looks like there is at least 3 different species of proetid trilobites present.
At the wholesale price of $145 for the flat, each piece is only $5
Trilobites were a very diverse group of extinct marine arthropods. They first appeared in the fossil record in the Early Cambrian (521 million years ago) and went extinct during the Permian mass extinction (250 million years ago). They were one of the most successful of the early animals on our planet with over 25k described species, filling nearly every evolutionary niche. Due in large part to a hard exoskeleton (shell), they left a excellent fossil record.
