Trilobites featured in new UA Mineral Museum exhibit

The University of Arizona Mineral Museum previewed its new exhibit on trilobites last week.  The delicacy of some of the specimens legs and antennas is astonishing, especially if you are used to seeing the fossils mostly as flattened bodies embedded in the rock.   To my knowledge, this is the first time the museum has had a fossil exhibit, focusing instead on minerals.
