ABOUT US

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.
