This is truly an abstract piece of natural art - 100% real and untouched. It's gorgeous (and almost didn't make it out of my personal collection). A partial slab of two trilobites, exactly as it was found coming out of the ground, having not seen the light of day for somewhere near 500 MILLION YEARS. Look at the color contrast, the Earth's energy of twisting and turning and morphing and preserving these fossils is incredible. A superb piece of natural history art and a gentle reminder that beauty doesn't equate perfection. Custom steel base included.
