Trilobite Bonanza!

I don't know about you, but I spend way too much time searching for trilobite merchandise on the internet. It can be a futile and lonely pursuit. If you're persistent though, it can pay off in spades! So here is a gallery of some of my favorite trilobite finds; a guide post of sorts for any other poor trilobite-hungry souls out there in cyberspace. 

First up is this fabulous sharpie drawing of an Oryctocephalus 
trilobite, done by weirdbuglady and bought on etsy. I love this piece! Check out her shop, it contains some 
of the most brilliant soft sculptures imaginable.

Next we have this "quiet trilobite", also bought on etsy, this time from ArtYes
who also does lovely depictions of diatoms. 

Need a trilobite that's a little more water proof? Try The Tapir Preservations Fund's extinct animal collection

Or maybe you want to wear your trilobite? I got this great design printed on a hoodie from Trilobitten's Cafepress shop

Now when the weather is cool I'm able to flash my trilobite pride all day at work. 

Still not convinced? Go on your own search. But be sure to tell me if you find anything cool. I'm always in the mood for trilobites.


  1. i like the sharpie drawing, very interesting, thankyou ♥

  2. What interesting finds . . . . have fun in your search. :0)

  3. Ahahahaha! I love trilobites! I had the pleasure of digging up my own in Delta, Utah a few years ago! Too cool!
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Thanks, Corinna! I've had one on a necklace since I was about 20. It's stashed away somewhere, but I'll at least send you a photo when it surfaces again. I used to wear it all the time.

  5. What a great collection. Isn't it fab how we all have our different interests?

  6. I like the quiet trilobite. It's funky but science classy at the same time. :)

  7. All cool stuff! I see why you're into this :) Weirdbuglady has an AWESOME shop!

  8. These are all great! I've always wanted a trilobite fossil, but that plastic version looks like a great substitute.

  9. I've never even heard of them before but that's really cool that people make stuff for the fans. I like the Sharpie drawing.
