Send me your 'wants list' for future international and UK shows or for my fossil collecting trips in Britain:
If you are a fieldwork collector and have surplus trilobites or other Palaeozoic fossils for sale or trade, please get in touch. I buy whole collections too!
New high quality, value for money Ordovician trilobites from Portugal uploaded.
Offered is a superb 24cm (along spinal axis) complete and articulated specimen of this familiar marine reptile, from the Middle Triassic Guanling Formation of Xingyi, Guizhou Province, China.
There are many examples of this species on the market and 'enhanced' specimens are common; usually reflected in the pricing. This very aesthetic specimen, which is a dorsal preservation, is without restoration or reconstruction and it is fully articulated. There is one natural calcite vein through the base of the neck, which shows very minore sinstral displacement; further testimony to the authentic nature of the specimen.
The skull is detailed andshows fine detail of the dorsal skull elements; the whole of the vertebral column is complete, including the tip of the tail and all rib, and.all four limbs are intact with all digits finely preserved. Pectoral and pelvic girdles are not seen in dorsal preservation
In all a magnificent and displayable specimen. Matrix approx. 30cm X 20cm X 1cm.
Excellent price for such an extraordinarily detailed, articulated and displayable specimen................!
Although I sell a very wide range of fossils from Pre- Cambrian to Pleistocene age, I specialize in trilobites from all over the globe and in particular, British species.
I collect regularly in the UK, with more than forty five years of fieldwork experience and probably the best working knowledge of British trilobite localities. I have a doctorate and a masters degree in trilobite taxonomy and British Palaeozoic stratigraphy and an Open University degree in Natural Sciences.
If you are an amateur collector, a more serious scientific collector, or an agent for an educational organization ( e.g College, University or Museum), I can supply materials to suit your needs! I also buy whole collections and trade materials too. Visits are welcome,by appointment only.
