From an old collection comes this exceptional highly three dimensional group of brachiopods, considering the age of these shells the preservation is wonderful. A fabulous and ancient grouping of these rare but beautifully preserved shells.
From an old collection comes this wonderful and matrix free, three dimensional trilobite. Specimens from this well known and classic locality are becoming scarse to obtain thesedays. A great addition to any collection.
The Wrens Nest reef deposit is probably the most famous Silurian outcrop in the world. The specimens from this locality have been collected for many centuries and are highly prized by collectors throughout the world. This particular specimen, collected many decades ago, is a three quarter complete trilobite, only missing the tail. This does not detract from the overall rarity or beauty of this bug. The eyes are wonderfully preserved showing many of the lenses. Specimens from this locality are becoming very scarse to obtain and are now only found in old collections.
This specimen was collected at this very well known and famous Palaeozoic site of Dobbs Linn. The matrix is literally covered in pyritised Graptolites and really stands out from the black surrounding matrix. Quite an exceptional piece from this classic locality.
