    Cambropallas Trilobite

    From the album: Robs Fossil Collection

    Cambropallas Trilobite A very large fossil Trilobite, Cambropallas from Jbel Ougnate, Anti-Atlas Mountains, Morocco This specimen measures approx. 180mm (7 inches) long There is some restoration. This is in the last 3 sections that make up the tail and the right hand genal spine. This a fairly good example for such a large specimen Middle Cambrian age, Jbel Wawrmast limestone formation
  2. Hello. There are many indicators to be authentic, but being such a common piece to forge, I would like someone to confirm it for me. This is the description of the sale: ...size of 10.5 cm... a 13 x 9.5 cm concretion. ... it has restorations.
  3. This is(or are) awesome gigantic Cambropallas from Jbel Wawrmast Formation, Morocco. The largest trilobite measures 6.5 inches long. The smaller one may measure 4 inches if complete. I know that there are a lot of fakes and heavily restored specimens for this type of giant trilobite. I can say this is absolutely real, cause I was not able to find any evidence of restoration or carving, and there are a lot of incomplete trilobite pieces in the matrix. These are quite heavy and large pieces, so none of my stands can support these. I should get a pair of new stands to
  4. I've been thinking of buying this Cambropallas trilo, but it seems fake to me. The price seemed a bit too low as well. Is it fake, or just a really good deal?
  5. This Cambropallas trilobite looks pretty good to me, but curious if anyone sees any restoration I may be missing. Is this all natural? Thanks!
  6. Hello, I found this trilobite on a estate sale and since I’m new to fossils I was wondering if anybody here could help me out and shed some light on it, is it a Cambropallas? And most importantly I was wonderingif it was real or fake The matrix seems weird... What do you all think?
  7. Hello fossil friends! While looking for some unique species to add to my collection, I came across this Cambropallas and was wondering if it looked mostly genuine or heavily restored? I know near complete specimens are hard to come by, but this seller says the trilobite was a part of their personal collection at one point and they took pride in it. Thank you
  8. I recently had the opportunity to obtain three specimens of the famous trilobite Cambropallas at a very low price. I've always wanted one of these; preferably a real one, although the fake/restored ones also interested me, if I could find one for the right price. So this was too good an opportunity to miss. Before I say anything else, I should say that I am a long way from being a trilobite expert. I only have half a dozen cheap examples in my collection, although I am interested in Moroccan fossils in general, and the repair/restoration/forgery that you often find in fossils from
  9. Hello everyone, I'm an Italian amateur collector with a small but nice collection of fossils and minerals that I started when I was 5yo in 1995. Then at 15yo I put apart my passion until few days ago when, using my 3D printer, I made some nice modular drawer to reorder in my collection of +-1000 pieces. I will finish the project in the next weeks and I will share it with you, as it can be of inspiration for your collection as well. Doing this hard work, I looked with a more mature point of view some big fossils that my parents and friends (not experts!) gave me as present many
  10. Hi all Wondering if this Cambropallas andalusiana is real, it looks good to me. Description says: Location: Sahara Desert, Morocco Age: Cambrian 525 million years old Specimen is 190x150mm. Trilobite is 98x80mm "There is no visible restoration on the face of this specimen."

    true or false?

    in German: Write-protected,so no outtakes! Acanthopyge,Selenopeltis,Acadoparadoxides,Cambropallas St. Petersburg trilobites seem to be subject to this blight as well Nice example: Dysplanus glued to an earlier Aseri-stage matrix!.Why?That matrix looked better,thus enabling the dealer to up the price! other: Paralejurus without terrace lines Tutorial_zum_ErkeTrilfakehungen.pdf
  12. I went with a few friends to browse around a antique mall today, and i came across some cool pieces. I think i got a pretty good deal on some nice fossils. But i really do not buy fossils enough to know if a price is really good or not. I'd like to hear your opinion. The first one that caught my eye was a 7" Cambropallas pos/neg from Morocco. Now i know these are notorious for being faked, so i examined it as best as i could. It definitely is real, but has some repair. The negative side has the most repair. But i thought the $75 was worth a talk. So we talked and i got 10% knocked off. $68 so
  13. I was perusing our favorite auction site and saw two specimens of purported Cambropallas that look exceedingly different than the usual squished-in-a-shale-nodule sort of bugs that traditionally are found for sale (and faked with reckless abandon). These look more like a Cambrian form of the Moroccan Devonian bugs - preserved in limestone in inflated, 3-dimensional form, complete with axial spines toward the rear. If you search for: "Cambropallas sp. telesto Flying Free" you will see more pictures of these highly suspicious items than the ones I attached. I am deeply suspicious of these,

  16. Hi all, as we know, Cambropallas trilobites are one of the most highly faked of all trilobites. Still, I am keen to get a real pair. I notice more positive+negatives popping up in the market, sometimes for 150 USD or less. How safe are these type? Have fakers found a new method to create pairs now? What do you think of these two in particular?

  18. I 've got questions about these trilobite species. Basically, when I search for Cambropallas, I also get search results of Andalusiana. Sometimes the results even show Cambropallas (Andalusiana). The same occurs for Metacanthina and Hollardops, where results of Hollardops (Metacanthina) occurs. Are Metacanthina and Hollardops the same family of trilobites? Which is the scientific name? Are Andalusiana and Cambropallas the same family too? Which is the scientific name? Thanks!
