Gigantic Cambropallas with positive and negative (Real)


Recommended Posts

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 display them..

Spines are preserved really well.

Comparison with Phacops.sp . The Phacops looks like a baby.

I see a code 'TTP. 1. 4. 9' behind the positive part, and some pieces of crushed trilobites(It may be a molt) .
