Send me your 'wants list' for future international and UK shows or for my fossil collecting trips in Britain:
If you are a fieldwork collector and have surplus trilobites or other Palaeozoic fossils for sale or trade, please get in touch. I buy whole collections too!
New high quality, value for money Ordovician trilobites from Portugal uploaded.
Offered from the celebrated locality in the Lower Devonian, Hunsruck Slates at Bundenbach, Germany, is a rare, double example of the elegant starfish Urastella asperula.
Preserved in pyrite and in crisp detail, the largest specimen is approximately 5cm and shows all five arms with their delicate calcareous plates; two arms have broken tips.This specimen is in dorsal aspect. The smaller starfish is also 5cm across the arms and is preserved ventral side up, with fine detail of the pentagonal central disc.

Affordable price for such a rare, complete and displayable double example of this uncommon starfish............one for the specialist.
Although I sell a very wide range of fossils from Pre- Cambrian to Pleistocene age, I specialize in trilobites from all over the globe and in particular, British species.
I collect regularly in the UK, with more than forty five years of fieldwork experience and probably the best working knowledge of British trilobite localities. I have a doctorate and a masters degree in trilobite taxonomy and British Palaeozoic stratigraphy and an Open University degree in Natural Sciences.
If you are an amateur collector, a more serious scientific collector, or an agent for an educational organization ( e.g College, University or Museum), I can supply materials to suit your needs! I also buy whole collections and trade materials too. Visits are welcome,by appointment only.
