Textured stud earrings made from a million year old Trilobite fossil, a captured replication of a past world full of life, legend, and mystery.
Trilobites are extinct marine arthropods. The first appearance of trilobites in the fossil record is over 521 million years ago. By the time trilobites first appeared in the fossil record, they were already highly diversified and geographically dispersed. Because trilobites had wide diversity and an easily fossilized exoskeleton, they left an extensive fossil record. The study of their fossils has facilitated important contributions to biostratigraphy, paleontology, evolutionary biology, and plate tectonics.
