Wearable Trilobites: a Prehistoric Update

In a recent post I discussed about 'wearable trilobites', that are trilobites used as items of personal adornment. 
The oldest example of ‘trilobitic fashion accessory’ is the drilled fossil that has been found in a 15 000 year old archeological site, hence named La Grotte du Trilobite (French for 'the Trilobite’s Cave'). At the time when I wrote the post, I was looking for a good picture of the trilobitic ornament, but without luck. Today I browsed Mammoth Science and I found it!

The object found in La Grotte du Trilobite: humans used fossil trilobites as items of personal adornment since prehistoric times!
