  • These are trilobites we personally collected in Utah.
  • While we were experimenting with some different cleaning techniques, an amazing thing happened. The trilobites’ surfaces turned golden, just like shiny Pyrite. Although  occasionally there are traces of Pyrite found in these deposits, the trilobites themselves are not covered in Pyrite.  After we figured out what we had done that caused this, we further tested the results and determined the change was stable and permanent in the same sense as Pyrite is. You should not rub it, or expose it to cleaning solvents or water in order to maintain the brightness of the golden surface.  This is not pyrite, nor a stain, paint, or chemical reaction.
