Guarantee of Authenticity

We unconditionally guarantee the authenticity of all of our fossils and minerals. With over 30 years of experience collecting and selling fossils we have the expertise to assess whether or not a fossil is real, repaired or restored. Many of our specimens have little or no restoration, which is the way we prefer them. We are always upfront about any alterations if applicableWe also provide a certificate of authenticity upon request for all of our fossils and minerals.

Damaged Shipments 

We professionally pack all of our fossils and minerals. In the unlikely event that an item was damaged during shipment, it is important to document the damage to both the specimen and shipping box with photographs.

No reimbursement can be made without proper compliance to these guidelines.

Lost Shipments

We are not responsible for shipments lost in transit due to postal service or courier error, if no insurance has been purchased. Please contact us to arrange insurance. However, if an item does not reach you we will conduct an investigation and personally call the shipping service and do our best to track down the item - it is much better to chose a shipping method that method that includes a tracking number.
