Relic : a surviving memorial of something past.

Trilobites are perhaps one of the most iconic creatures of the Cambrian and one of the earliest recognized arthropod, existing from the early Cambrian period, all the way to the Devonian. Their hard exoskeleton allowed for near perfect fossilization to occur, making them invaluable to the fossil record. Although they can be quite small, the largest of these scavengers were as large as 18 inches. Canadian trilobites have been found particularly spectacular, not only due to their frequency of occurrence in our Rocky Mountains, but also because of their incredible level of preservation - sometimes preserving even the soft-bodied portions of the creature.

Specs:
- Hot sculpted glass, sandblasted (Please note that listed size is approximate as each trilobite and stone mount varies slightly)
- Mounted on raw quartz in matrix (geode)

Each approx. 6in x 4in x 3in, but size varies slightly from piece to piece
