Welcome to dino fossils uk!

We are one of the UK's largest fossil stores and have been supplying private collectors, universities and museums with fossils since 2012.  We ship worldwide and stock a huge range of specimens, from common pocket money fossils to rare and beautiful display pieces.  All the specimens on our website are genuine fossils, we don't sell any casts or replicas.

We love palaeontology and believe the promotion of fossil collecting is an excellent way to enthuse people about the science and build a greater understanding of our planet and its natural history.  Whether you're looking to purchase a cheap fossil or something more expensive, we value all our customers equally.  We love to talk fossils, so if you have any questions about the specimens we sell, or want to discuss any other aspects of fossil collecting, drop us a message!


Every specimen on our website is 100% authentic. We have supplied fossils to universities, museums, film/television studios and thousands of private collectors.

We don't sell any casts or replicas, just real fossils, and we offer a lifetime guarantee that the fossils you purchase are authentic.

the Process of identification

We pride ourselves on the accurate identification of all our specimens and every fossil is identified in accordance with the latest scientific literature.    

The processes of identification are as varied as the fossils we sell, but we aim to provide the most accurate and up to date identification of specimens possible.

FRequently asked questions

New collectors often email us asking if we provide certificates of authenticity. We do not offer certificates with the fossils we sell as there is no official body which authenticates fossils, so to offer them to customers would be a bit misleading. A certificate of authenticity really isn't worth the paper it's written on. However we do offer a lifetime guarantee that all the specimens we sell are authentic.

Whenever we get requests for certificates from new collectors, we always recommend they get some independent advice to satisfy them that a fossil is real before making a purchase. That feeling of holding a real fossil, of a connection to the Earth's past, is an exhilerating one, but you're only going to experience it if you know the fossil you're holding is real. For any collector who is unsure, I recommend thefossilforum.com.

I also urge any new collectors to research a dealer; check for reviews from past customers and ask other collectors, if you know any. But never rely on a certificate.

We source our fossils from all over the world!  We aim to supply our customers with a broad range of fossils, and the places and people we purchase them from are equally varied. In some cases we aquire our fossils direct from the individual(s) who collected them (this is common with many of the North American fossils we sell).  In others, such as with the most common varieties of fossils, they are exacavated and purchased in large quantites.  For example, teeth from the phosphate beds in Morocco typically pass through several hands before reaching fossil dealers such as ourselves.  These teeth are so abundant that you'll spot them in most fossil shops and museum gift shops.
