History | Science

Trilobites are an extinct arthropod from the group Trilobita that lived in the earth's oceans from the end of the Cambrian Period (520 million years ago) to the beginning of the Permian Period (250 million years ago), which puts them here far before the dinosaurs! The name trilobite is derived from their 3-lobed exoskeleton structure, as well as their 3-region body structure. They are a diverse group, of which over 200,000 species are recognized in the fossil record, making them the most species-rich group of fossils. Unsurprisingly, trilobites have been found on every continent on earth where paleozoic outcroppings exist.

Metaphysical Properties

Trilobite fossils have been found in ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman tombs, and in human cultural sites as old as 50,000 years. They very well could have been the first fossils ever collected!
With this history, it's not hard to imagine that Trilobites are believed to nurture patience and perseverance and, like other fossils, they are believed to promote strength and protection.

Artisan Info

Designed and handmade by the artisans at House of Snakes in Fort Collins, CO
All of the pieces from House of Snakes are handmade using fair-mined and recycled precious metals and stones.



Although we always strive to provide clear, accurate images of our crystals and other products, we photograph under professional lighting, which is meant to mimic sunlight. If you get your crystal and think it looks a little different under low or artificial light, try checking it out again in sunlight!

Our crystals are one-of-a-kind art, created by nature.

No two pieces are the same, and there is no such thing as "perfection" in nature.

When it comes to our hand-carved items, remember that artists work with and around imperfections, druzy pockets, and other natural variations to bring each carving out of a piece of natural stone.

We consider these imperfections to be one of the most wonderful parts of crystal collecting, and we invite you to embrace each carving's uniqueness!

We will always try to portray each piece honestly, so be sure to look closely at our images and videos to ensure you know what to expect.
