Details

Kolihapeltis chlupaci hollardi

Kolihapeltis is one of the more rare species of trilobites found in the southern Moroccan Sahara Desert. Fossils from the Laatchana locality have been scarce on the market as the formation was over collected around 2010-2012.

Specimens like this are prepared using lab equipment to delicately remove the hard limestone from the fossil, a combination of chisels and abrasives reveal the wonderfully preserved fossils. Well over 80 + work hours are put into cleanings specimens like this one here.
