A collector’s dream, this TRILOBITE fossil specimen once dwelled in the ocean 240-540 million years ago!
Weighing over 20 pounds and measuring 18” long x 12” wide x 2” deep, this striking Trilobite is an unusually large form of arthropod called Paradoxides harlani. Trilobites were the first life form with complex eyes and are the distant relatives of modern lobsters, crabs, and spiders.
Following their extinction at the end of the Paleozoic Age, seafloor sediments encased the exoskeletons to fossilize these forms through silicification.
The extraordinary detail of this Trilobite is natural, and the surrounding limestone matrix was carefully carved away to reveal its ancient beauty.
Trilobite fossils are believed to help you through transition, transformation, and growth. They have been cherished for centuries as talismans of protection and longevity.
Drawing from the adaptability of this sea-dwelling creature that generated new shells to accommodate its growth, Trilobite can assist you in releasing limiting beliefs and embracing your potential.
Trilobite energy can encourage leadership and openness to change. Connected with the Root and Solar Plexus Chakra as well as the elements of Storm and Earth, working with a Trilobite promotes stability, confidence, inspiration, and creative vision.
The presence of a Trilobite in your home or office can foster harmony, teamwork, and support.
