A VARIED SELECTION OF GENUINE FOSSILS FROM THE UK AND ALL ROUND THE WORLD.
This is a super
little naturally polished piece of Whitby Jet.
While not always thought of as a fossil, it really is one.
This piece is a
lovely naturally worn piece, worn down smooth by the action of the waves on the
beaches where it was collected.
it would be a nice artifact to carry in the pocket and examine when you have a
You won't receive this exact piece, but one very similar and measuring roughly
Boxed and labelled and complete with a signed certificate of authenticity.
Jet is found mainly
locally between the cliffs of Whitby and Staithes although mining works have
taken place as far inland as Bilsdale, Rosedale and Great Ayton. Jet is a
form of fossilised drift wood created over a period of 120 million years.
it is believed that Jet comes from the Araucaria tree known in the common name
of the Monkey puzzle tree. When the trees became imbedded in a thick
layer of sedimentary rock they began to fossilise and turn to Jet. Jet is
a combination of several chemicals the most common being carbon, Hydrogen,
nitrogen, sulphur and oxygen. Trace elements include silicon, potassium,
calcium, iron, copper and aluminium.
I have spent a
long time looking for some Jet to offer with my other fossil items and I plan
on making some jewellery with it soon.
EVIDENCE OF THE IMPACT THAT KILLED THE DINOSAURS!!!
This is a very difficult item to categorise, but I have had to find a section. This is a boxed set containing small pieces of rock from the legendary KT Boundary.They all measure roughly 5mm across As anyone who knows their geology and palaentology will know, is the rock layer that is thought to mark the point at which the Dinosaurs were destroyed by a HUGE meteorite impact. These samples come from the Upper Cretaceous Period of Trochu, Alberta - Canada. You will also receive a signed certificate of authenticity with detailed information on this rare material
ONLY A FEW LEFT
This is a truly beautiful set of 2 small Echinoids.They were living in the Cretaceous seas in what is now Morocco.
Not often seen for sale - these Echinoids ( or Sea Urchins) show off their detailed spine lines and are superb little fossils.
I only have a small supply of these so snap one up before they are all gone.
Come boxed and labelled. NB - The Echinoids you will receive won't be these exact one, but VERY similar in size and appearance and all measure roughly 2cm across
This is a superb
collection of Moroccan fossils
You will receive 5 different bags - each containing from 1 up to 15 fossils.
The set you will receive won't be the exact set pictured but will be very
similar and some of the sets are better and with higher quality fossils than
The fossils are from
the Devonian era - 417-354 Million years ago.
The fossils are superbly detailed little specimens and
while not the most obscure or rare of all fossils Moroccan fossils make a
nicely affordable addition to any fossil collection.
The bags are as
Haematite Goniatite -
at least 1, often 2 or 3
Ammonite - at least 1, often 2 or 3
Crinoid - 1
Coral - at least 1, usually 2 or 3
Sharks Teeth ( as well as various fish vertebrae and ray mouthparts) - at least
A super polished Moroccan fossil Orthoceras PointMeasures - 8.3cm
This lovely and unusually shaped Orthoceras piece was crafted by Moroccan craftsmenThe Orthoceras was a marine squidlike creature with many inner chambers. It propelled itself through the seas over 400 million years ago in the Silurian age.Comes complete with a clear plastic stand and would look great on any mantelpiece
This is a simple but unusual fossil.it is a fossilised rootlet from a tree.I can't tell you which tree as I don't know, but I am sure with a little research you could find out.It is from Western Australia and is roughly 1 Million years oldThe rootlet is 4.4cm long and 5mm thick
This is a super and
very large fossil Belemnite.
Belemnites aren't a rare or valuable fossil, but they are a very popular and
well collected fossil for UK collectors.
if a novice has collected a fossil from a beach or quarry, it will usually be
either an Ammonite or a Belemnite.
These I have to offer are far larger than the normal Belemnites you would
They were collected in the Midlands in England and date from.
You won't receive this exact fossil pictured, but another VERY similar in size
I have a large box of these and they vary very little,other than very slight
The Belemnite you will receive will measure at least 6cm long.
These are large fat fossils and WELL worth what I am asking for them.
Come bagged and
This is a Mosasaur toothThe Mosasaur was an early crocodile type marine reptile from the late Cretaceous.You will receive one of the pictured teeth.They all have lovely shiny enamel enamel with super colouration.A few of the teeth have slight damage, but this is common with these fragile teeth.The tooth will come in a padded gem jar and is a super little fossil.
