These extremely rare pyritized Late Ordovician, trilobites, Triarthrus eatoni  come from the Whetstone Gulf Formation, Lewis County, New York. The trilobites are in dark gray shale, but the bugs have been partially impregnated with Pyrite, outlining the soft tissue structures,  such as antennae, legs and gut. The impregnation is natural and not man-made, it is a phenomenon which occurs very rarely in nature.

The plate consists of two trilobites and a twig-like structure which has not been identified as yet. The larger Triarthrus is 0.85 inches long, the smaller one is 0.35 inches. The whole piece measures 4.55 by 3.55 by 0.45 inches.
The larger trilobite has a repair running through some of the lower legs. the repair extends into the base of the ‘twig’.
