This Paradoxides specimen is of a more rare dark brown variety found in Morocco and is in spectacular condition and preservation. This specimen has only approximately 3% restoration, mainly to areas on the genal spines and edges of the free cheeks along with a small area on the ends of the lower left pleural fringe. Part of a very rare find in the late 1990’s. A seam was discovered that produced some of the finest Paradoxides specimens ever seen, including this specimen. Rare dark brown specimen.
Origin: Anti-Atlas Mountain Range, South Morocco
CAMBRIAN PERIOD: 543 – 510 million years ago
