Fossil Preparation

Yorkshire Fossil Preparation


Fossil preparation is an art and a science with a long-standing history of bringing the past to life.  I have personally gotten an enormous amount of joy out of creating spectacular presentation pieces for individuals all over the world, contributing to the scientific record, and experiencing the uniqueness each individual fossil presents itself with after millions of years of being completely untouched by human hands.

My fossil preparation workshop features some of the latest state-of-the-art equipment, enabling me to achieve high-end results.  Not only can I prepare fossils in-situ of the matrix using a mix of air pens and grinders, air abrasion and acid preparation techniques, but I can also provide fine results to those fossils that lend themselves well to cutting and polishing.

If you discover a fossil that you would like to have prepared, please feel free to contact me with a little information on where you found the fossil and I will get back to you as soon as possible.  I will consider all fossil preparation work regardless of how simple or complex it is.  Most importantly, I want you to get years of enjoyment out of your great find.

Below are a few examples of some of my favorite preparation projects, however you can explore a larger catalogue of my work on my instagram page.
