Send me your 'wants list' for future international and UK shows or for my 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!
Offered from the Miocene Tretihorna Flora of Doly Belina, Czech Republic, is a piece of matrix approx. 7cm X 6cm X 1.5cm preserving two fine, complete and slightly overlapping leaves.
A 4cm leaf of the distinctive maple Acer tricuspidatum, is ovelapped by a 4cm Alnus julianiformis, and both specimens show great detail of the wide central veins and systems of smaller branching veins, with no signs of insect damage on either leaf.
Affordable price for a sharply preserved double example from an unusual locality!
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.
