This heavily depends on the country. A lot of countries adopt the "finders-keepers" rule. This makes it possible for these lucky finders to keep, or sell these fossils. All our fossils are obtained within this context.
For the time being, we are mostly an online business. We do have a couple of products at physical shops in Malta (Europe). However, we mainly operate on an online basis, delivering products locally as well as internationally.
Specimen pricing depends on several factors, depending on the specimen. For example a megalodon tooth is priced depending on its size, where it was found, whether it is complete, the amount of enamel still present on it, etc. The price is also effected by other factors such as getting the fossil authenticated and dated by a paleontologist, and courier delivery to ensure safe and careful transit of the fossils. However, we feel that our fossils are very reasonably priced for the bundle that you get. Let us know if you find the same bundle, elsewhere, cheaper. We'll do our best to match the price!
Our specimen come from all over the world; England, France, Morocco, Madagascar, USA, Australia...It is stated explicitly in the product description where that particular fossil or meteorite was discovered.
Yes. Feeling the specimen's weight and texture is part of the experience that we all look forward to. For those fossils and meteorites that come in a frame, the frame can be carefully opened, and you will be able to carefully take the specimen out. All handling must be done very slowly and with great care, as any extra pressure on the specimen, or dropping it, can cause it to break apart. When ready, you can put it back safely into the frame or on the display mount. As much as possible it is advised to avoid excessive handling so that the specimen can also be enjoyed by generations to come.
A lot of children are fascinated by nature, and a lot of them have a big liking to dinosaurs and big sharks. However, it is suggested to avoid handling of fossils and specimen by children who don't really understand the importance of careful handling. They would still be able to observe the specimen and learn about the creature or location it once belonged to. This can be a very educational and enjoyable experience.
