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 is a fine and detailed double example of the delicate crinoid Rhadocrinus nanus from the celebrated quarries in the Lower Devonian, Hunsruck Slates of Bundenbach, Germany.
The largest crown is 9cm across the arms and shows the 4cm anal tube in great detail. A 7cm articulated stem links the two crowns; the smaller of which is 5cm across the arms.............altogether a fascinating and displayable legacy of Devonian marine life!
Matrix approx. 11cm X 11cm. One small clean repair.
Affordable price for such a fine multiple example of an uncommon crinoid!.
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.
