Complete specimens are a rare occurrence in the fossil record of trilobites, which restricts greatly the taphonomy of their burial, which, in turn, is responsible for their ultimate appearance, inclusive of their color. Complete outstretched trilobites, with all sutures intact, indicate sudden burial of living individuals in a tranquil environment, at some depth in the sea, remote from the disturbance of wave motion. Such episodes of sudden burial are known to occur as a result of gentle but massive deposition of silt in suspension in so-called turbidity waves, the result of surface storms and sometimes volcanic ash fallout.
After the death of a trilobite, several pathways lead to fossilization of the remains, which depend critically on the chemistry of the local environment. With few by now famous exceptions, like the Burgess Shale of British Columbia and the Chengjiang fauna of China, where soft tissues are beautifully preserved, the decay of the biopolymers making up the soft tissues, generally fostered by bacterial action even in anaerobic marine sediments, leaves no trace of internal, nonmineralized structures. Only the trilobite exoskeleton, the carapace, partially mineralized by calcite, often escapes complete dissolution, and this may survive unaltered over geological eras.
However, over time, mineralogical alterations, diagenesis, still conspire to modify the chemical nature of the fossilized carapace, leading to a multitude of final appearances, and in particular colors, of the fossil trilobite. Thus, the brilliant ochre colors frequently encountered in the carapace of trilobites preserved in clay-mineral shales are the result of a three-step taphonomic-di-agenetic process, favored by a marine environment rich in dissolved iron hydroxide and oxygen starved.
