FAQ

Are all fossils real/authentic?

Yes, all of the fossils are 100% real and authentic. We don’t sell casts or replicas nor do we use colouring of any kind. It will always be specified in the description if there has been any preparation done to the fossil. We provide certificates of authenticity upon request.

Do you ship worldwide?

Yes, we offer worldwide shipping for all of our fossils. For more information about shipping, check our shipping & returns page. 

Are there restrictions to the shipping of fossils?

The exception to this are the mammoth tusks. These cannot be shipped to the US states of California, Hawaii, Illinois, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York state, Oregon and Washington state due to restrictions on ivory. This restriction only applies to the mammoth tusks, and specifically to these 9 states, there are no such restrictions in the rest of the world. For more information, please refer to this page. 

What is the expected shipping time?

The expected delivery time is 2-6 business days in Europe and 8-12 business days for the rest of the world.

Shipping during November, December and January can take longer due to the holidays. This can cause the shipping time to be doubled.
