LARGE FOSSIL TRILOBITE
  
Ogyginus corndensis
​​​​​​​  
450 million years old
Ordovician period
 
Builth Wells, Wales

 
A large trilobite from Wales. It is from Ordovician rocks exposed in a quarry at Gilwern Hill, near Builth Wells in mid Wales. 
  
It is an impressive specimen that sits well for display. It has been repaired, but the repair is not noticeable.
 
Trilobites, an extinct class of marine animals, are the oldest of all the familiar fossils.  They flourished in the seas during the Ordovician period, an early division of geological time.
 
The photographs are taken using oblique lighting to make the fossil easier to see.
