  1. I don't buy many fossils and most that I have bought, or that have been bought for me, were from gift shops and the like when I first started collecting. However, for my birthday a couple of years back, my wife surprised me with this plate of a pair of Russian trilobites. They are Asaphus Intermedius and Asaphus Punctatus. I was overjoyed! From my meager knowledge at the time, I thought that they were completely real. I knew to look out for fakes (i.e. carvings, plaster/resin cast, etc.), or heavily composite specimens from other areas, and since these came from Russia, I thought I was in the clear. My wife also spoke to the seller, and from my understanding, they were very helpful and seemed sincere. They also disclosed that some of their specimens do have a little restoration/repair work, such as the crack on the back of my plate and had a money back guarantee. Fast forward a couple of years... With my birthday coming up and me working on setting up a new display cabinet I got to thinking about this plate of trilobites. Then I remembered that these were from Russia, and that I read somewhere that things coming from there tend to be heavily restored with resin and the like. I have also read that you can tell by using a UV light (black light) to shine on them and any resin used will glow. I don't have one handy, but will pick one up the next time I'm out to test with. So I wanted to poll the community and see what people thought. Are these real? Fake? Heavily restored? I just realized that I didn't include some form of measurement or something for scale in the pics... Each trilobite is roughly 3.5 inches long x 2 inches wide (9 cm x 5cm). The whole plate is 5 inches x 6 inches (12.5cm x 15cm). Front view: Back View: Notice the glued crack... Side Views: Possible restored area on pygidium? Appears to be a slightly different shade than rest of trilobite. Resin? I can provide more pics if needed. And include a scale.
  2. I would like to add in my collection some trilobites. Natural specimens, not fakes or reconstructed material! I prefer specimens on matrix. In return I offer fossils from central Europe, like ammonites, crinoids, big bivalves, gastropods….
  3. Asaphus kowalewskii, Lawrow 1856. Middle Ordovician, Leningrad region, Russia. Size of the specimen is 5х3.5 cm. The trilobite was found in the abandoned limestone quarry near St. Petersburg. Field season 2017. Preparation is finished about a week ago. saphus
  4. While doing a little fossil presentation to a local "Intro to Geology" class I did it..... Broke both eye stalks off this Asaphus kowalewskii. Any helpful tips from you folks regarding ways to align and hold the pieces while adhesive sets? And......lesson learned about transporting fragile specimens. :-(
  5. Asaphus cornutus Pander 1830. Middle Ordovician, Llanvirn epoch. Size of the specimen is 8х5 cm. Another of my finds of the field season 2015. The trilobite was found near Koporye Fortress, Russia. Preparation is finished in October 2015.
  6. Asaphus plautini Schmidt 1898. Middle Ordovician, Llanvirn epoch. Size of the specimen is 7х4.5 cm. This is one of my finds of the field season 2015. The trilobite was found in the abandoned limestone quarry near St. Petersburg, Russia. Preparation is finished in December 2015.
  7. Is this a genuine Asaphus Kowalewskii trilobite from St Petersburg, Russia? Personally I see no indication of trickery, and it has a repaired crack on the eye stalk, which supports my theory (because generally fakes either look perfect, or in really poor condition)
