Fossil Specimens For Sale

 

     

Because we often purchase entire mineral collector's collections it is not uncommon to get gemstones, magazines and books, and even fossils.  They seem to be of interest to many mineral collectors.  We normally disperse fossils at mineral shows but we have decided to begin doing so on-line, as well.  To follow will be fossils from collections or those we see for sale that were just too interesting to pass up.  Please keep in mind that we are mineral experts, not fossil experts so specific Genus, species, and locations will not be included unless known.
