This is a natural Russian trilobite on limestone matrix.


Coming from the Lower Ordovician Wolchov Horizan deposits near Saint Petersburg, Russia, this is a trilobite known as Asaphus lepidurus, one of the oldest of the Asaphids, stretching back nearly a half billion years in time. Asaphus lepidurus is believed to be a the progenitor of two major lines of Asaphus that followed.
