Trilobite Belt Buckle

$24.75

Whether you are a paleontologist, fossil collector, or just a fan of trilobites, this is the perfect accessory for you! This highly detailed belt buckle depicts the popular Devonian trilobite Phacops rana (so named because its eyes were thought to resemble those of a frog).

Trilobites are extinct arthropods that flourished, in great numbers and variety, in the seas of the Cambrian and lower Paleozoic eras. The last trilobites died out at the time of the Permian-Triassic extinction, but the fossils they left behind  are  perennial favorites with fossil collectors, and are of immense value to geologists, who use these "index fossils" to determine the ages of rocks.

Made to accommodate a 1" wide belt (not included). belt-hole prong is 3.1mm (1/8") in diameter.
