EXTINCTIONS has operated Science & Nature Stores in major shopping malls
for years, and now has a large "EXTINCTIONS Store" showroom in Lancaster,
PA. Our products include actual items from Nature you can't find in
similar stores - a huge line of fossils, minerals, seashells, and
butterflies, for example. We also carry familiar items found in similar
stores - posters, t-shirts, books, music, etc. And we listen to our
customers - we have exhaustively searched for, found, and stocked our
store with many items that our customers requested and couldn't find
EXTINCTIONS does much of its own field collecting and lab preparation,
therefore we are a direct source for many fossils. We collect at private
sites and have our own land leased solely for fossil excavation. We also
acquire many fossils in the unprepared state, and let our full time
preparators do the extraction. Our labs are equipped with
state-of-the-art preparation tools, which include microscopes, air
abrasive equipment (mini sandblasters), and diamond grinders. We also
have a network of contacts worldwide that supply us with finished fossils
from many regions around the globe.
EXTINCTIONS only sells real fossils in our fossil catalogs - we do not
sell ANY reproductions or replicas. We guarantee every fossil we offer
for sale is authentic and correctly represented - each individual fossil
comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS. Accordingly,
we do not sell fossils found on public land or acquired from questionable
sources. We strive to adhere to all laws governing the collection and
sale of fossils in the United States and around the world.
