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 late Vendian of Novodrustrovosk Quarry, western Ukraine is a piece of micaceous laminated siltstone with several inter-linked colonies of the enigmatic branching organism Paleodictyon sp.
This orgnism, described by Meneghini in 1850, is very variable and can be of mathematical geometry or organic and irregular, but always defines a pentagonal walled pattern. The matrix measures approximately 12cm X 9cm X 2cm
Great price for such a rare and well defined example from a famous locality in Ukraine
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.
