|ABOUT US " We just moved back to North Texas Region " !!
WHAT: The Fossil Factory is a forum for collectors in the Dallas
Fort Worth Metroplex to distribute fossil specimens and other
collectables to individuals not familiar with the areas rich
invertebrate fossils. Specimens are prepared with uncommon care using
the latest paleontological equipment/techniques. An air abrasive unit,
and air scribe tool are utilized for the cleaning process. When possible,
ammonite specimens are prepared without removing attached oysters, worm
tubes ( Hamulus, Sepula ) and other pelecypods. We find many ammonites
in concretions with septaria-type calcite veins. When possible, we do not
disturb these features. Many ammonites are cut with a water cooled
diamond saw, polished in a series of vibra-laps and then marketed as
cut/polished specimens. Enjoy our selection and send us an email when you
have a chance.
