Fossils provide us a window into the incredible history of life on Earth, each with a unique story to tell about the evolution of our planet and its inhabitants. We have carefully curated each specimen to ensure that it is of the highest quality.
Fossils are created when the remains of once living plants and animals are replaced over time with minerals. This mineralization period takes place over a long period of time, and fossils are typically found in old layers of rock. Some common fossils are ammonites, petrified wood, and fossil corals. Typically, only the hard parts of the organism are preserved; bones, shells, etc. This mineralization process can take place with a variety of minerals, but agates and quartzes are particularly common, and the results can be spectacular.
We believe that fossils are not just artifacts of the past, but living connections to the history of our planet. Fossils remind us of the vast scale of time, helping us to put our failures and successes into perspective.
