Stunning statement pendant/necklace. Made with a genuine fossil trilobite mined in Utah from a Wheeler shale formation. Fossil measures 1 1/2" long 1 1/8" wide. It is artfully wrapped in hand hammered copper without drilling or altering the fossil for a one of a kink look. It comes with a rubber/silicone cord.

Trilobites are hard-shelled, segmented creatures that lived hundreds of millions of years ago in the Earth's ancient seas. They are considered to be one of our planet's earliest complex life-forms and are one of the key signature creatures of the Paleozoic Era. Trilobites went extinct before dinosaurs even existed.
Trilobites (meaning "three lobes") are a well-known fossil group of extinct marine arthropods that form the class Trilobita. Trilobites first appear in the fossil record during the Early Cambrian period (540 million years ago) and flourished throughout the lower Paleozoic era before beginning a drawn-out decline to extinction when, during the Devonian, all trilobite orders, with the sole exception of Proetida, died out. Trilobites finally disappeared in the mass extinction at the end of the Permian about 250 million years ago.
