We are a group of professional preparers of trilobites, we have 17 years experience. The spicemens we prepare are in many famous museums in the world (FRANCE, USA, CANADA, ENGLAND, GERMANY, JAPAN...etc), or in hands of private collectors who have the largest trilobite collections in the globe, and other trilobite specialists.
Excellent trilobite preparation requires us to use modern methodes and special equipments like stereomicroscopes and sand blasters. The careful detailed work needs spending many hours concentrating on every part of exoskeleton as cheek, eyes, spines, and secondary sipnes, hypostome and so forth...
Through our work you can see how excellent is and fine preparation we can do in every part of the trilobite body.

One of the most difficult mission to do on a trilobite's exoskeleton is, to prepare the scondary spines that are too small! this koneprusia has hundreds of secondary spines that are smaller than a head of a sewing needle.
