Museum and Research Quality Fossil Reproductions

We strive to produce the highest quality fossil reproductions possible. Our preparation processes help make this possible. We clean each fossil with microblasters to ensure that all of the surface detail is visible. Our replicas are able to be used for scientific studies, they are just as good as having the real fossil when it comes to surface studies and for measurements.

Featured Project

The Montana Dueling Dinosaurs

In 2006, a pair of dinosaurs were found in the Hell Creek Formation, in Garfield County Montana. The two dinosaurs were preserved together and are nearly 100% complete and articulated. There was a theropod (currently identified as Nanotyrannus), and a herbivore (currently identified as a new ceratopsian). Preliminary evidence points to the two dinosaurs interacting before they were buried. This fossil find is being hailed as possibly the best ever in paleontological history.
