Cobble Creek: Calymene Trilobite Fossil - (25) 2" - 3 1/2" - Large

3 Trilobite fossils from the Atlas Mountain region of Morocco. These fossils typically have some sort of repair on them as they can easily be broken during extraction. This type of mud bug, roamed the ocean floors during the Upper Ordovician period. Great beginners fossil or for that hand's on educational lesson. Don't need 25 Calymene Trilobite Fossils?

From wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trilobite

Trilobites ( /ˈtraɪləˌbaɪt, ˈtrɪ-, -loʊ-/;[4][5] meaning "three lobes") are a fossil group of extinct marine arachnomorph arthropods that form the class Trilobita. Trilobites form one of the earliest-known groups of arthropods. The first appearance of trilobites in the fossil record defines the base of the Atdabanian stage of the Early Cambrian period (521 million years ago), and they flourished throughout the lower Paleozoic era before beginning a drawn-out decline to extinction when, during the Devonian, all trilobite orders except the Proetids died out. Trilobites disappeared in the mass extinction at the end of the Permian about 252 million years ago. The trilobites were among the most successful of all early animals, roaming the oceans for over 270 million years.[6]

By the time trilobites first appeared in the fossil record, they were already highly diversified and geographically dispersed. Because trilobites had wide diversity and an easily fossilized exoskeleton, they left an extensive fossil record, with some 17,000 known species spanning Paleozoic time. The study of these fossils has facilitated important contributions to biostratigraphy, paleontology, evolutionary biology, and plate tectonics. Trilobites are often placed within the arthropod subphylum Schizoramia within the superclass Arachnomorpha (equivalent to the Arachnata),[7] although several alternative taxonomies are found in the literature.

Trilobites had many lifestyles; some moved over the sea bed as predators, scavengers, or filter feeders, and some swam, feeding on plankton. Most lifestyles expected of modern marine arthropods are seen in trilobites, with the possible exception of parasitism (where scientific debate continues).[8] Some trilobites (particularly the family Olenidae) are even thought to have evolved a symbiotic relationship with sulfur-eating bacteria from which they derived food.[9]

The owner of the shop was EXTREMELY sincere! I ordered two lovely pieces of smoky amethyst! One of the pieces didn’t want to be mine. Mike was quick to help he messaged me explaining what had happened and offered to send me a different piece! Completely blown away with how well each piece was wrapped and secured. He was even so kind to send me an apology note along with a huge piece of ruby! He definitely wanted to make the situation right and he did. I could not be any happier with these three gorgeous pieces! Thank you tremendously 🙏 I’ll most certainly be a future buyer!

These blades of orange kyanite are even better looking than the photos. I got 6 of them. The energy from them definitely feels like kyanite, just with that warm emotionally-comforting feeling common in orange crystals like sunstone or orange jade. I see these small blades selling for $30-$50 online in copper wire wrapping. That is insane. You can order these and wrap them yourself and save oodles of cash. Buy these!!
