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 stock from St marie Show uploaded and new high quality, value for money Ordovician trilobites from Portugal uploaded.
Offered is a fine, detailed 4cm near complete example of the elegant and very rare spinous starfish Medusaster rhenanus Stuertz, 1890, from the celebrated quarries in the Lower Devonian, Hunsruck Slates of Bundenbach, Germany.
Eight of the arms are preserved with about half of the central disc, truncated by a natural joint. The arms are replete with the numerous spinous outgrowths that define this exotic species. Altogether a fascinating and displayable legacy of Devonian marine life!
Matrix approx. 10cm X 8cm X 0.5cm
Affordable price for such a fine and displayable example of a very rarely offered starfish from Bundenbach.
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.
