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 Bromley Collection, is a piece of fine grained silstone matrix preserving numerous sharply preserved examples of the leaves of the Horsetail Annularia sp., from the Upper Carboniferous Coal Measures of a former opencast coal mine, Bermuda Industrial Estate, Nuneaton, Warwickshire, UK.
With crisp outlines these distinctive radial leaves are spread over most of the surface of the matrix, which measures approx. 15cm X 8.5cm X 2,5cm. Horsetails are still extant today, but were much more widespread in the tropical swamps of late Carboniferous times.
Great price for a fine example of a UK representative of this group. from an unusual locality.....................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.
