Your Direct from the Lab Source for AUTHENTIC

Choice Quality Fossil Specimens and Artifacts
 

Welcome to the online showroom of PALEO DIRECT.  As an  international leader in paleontological suppliers, Paleo Direct takes great pride in providing a truly broad diversity of fossils and artifacts for sale of CONSISTENTLY superior quality and with every purchase backed by an unconditional lifetime written guarantee of correct identification, condition and authenticity. 

Our client list is vast, spanning the full range from major world museums and universities, international royalty and celebrities, to the casual informed, collector.  All have found our offerings to be without equal in both diversity and quality.  We think you will too.  Our highly informative website presents each and every fossil with a wealth of information and full disclosure specific to each specimen.  We believe it is vital for you to know details about the specific specimen you are considering in order for you to make the most informed decision in pursuit of building a collection of ONLY AUTHENTIC and accurately identified specimens of fine quality.

Many of the items we sell are not normally commercially available through any other venue.  This is due to a unique combination of our extensive field collecting and preparation efforts coupled with exclusive partnerships of many important world sources.  The staff at Paleo Direct consists of an association of U.S. and international partners, all of which spend considerable time each year in the field prospecting, collecting and preparing fossils and artifacts. 

We are an American company conducting year-round operations in the U.S. and abroad but with our headquarters and showroom here in the Greater Orlando region of Florida.  Every specimen we offer is wholly owned by us (we do not broker fossils for others) and available for private inspection by appointment in our 4000 square foot gallery and lab facility just outside Orlando, Florida.

We operate multiple preparation labs on our premises in Florida and in Europe.  These preparation laboratories are fully outfitted with the latest equipment for all aspects of specimen conservation and preparation.  The majority of specimens we sell were prepared in our own facilities by our staff.  This is extremely important as it allows us accurate and direct knowledge of every item we offer with respect to its method of preparation as well as specific details of repair and restoration.

From our beginnings in 1986, we have been addressing issues such as RESTORATION, REPAIR and MARKETPLACE FRAUD, we STRONGLY encourage and support customer awareness and education, vitally needed by YOU, to combat the ignorance and fraud that INCREASINGLY plagues the commercial fossil and antiquities trade.

If you are new to collecting or wish to learn more about fossils and the commercial market, please spend some time reading the invaluable information provided in the section titled INFORMATION.

If this is your first time visiting our online gallery, WELCOME!  We remain one of largest and most diversified professional paleontological suppliers of rare and premium quality specimens backed by honesty, knowledge and extensive experience that thousands of clients around the world have come to rely on.  The majority of specimens we offer are true museum grade and would be considered valuable additions to public or private collections of the highest level.

For the advanced collector, we promise you will never grow tired of admiring the highly unusual array and supreme quality of only genuine specimens we continually deliver to the public market.  We specialize in large, unique and very rare items that would accent any exhibition, interior or collection with an unforgettable presence! 

For the interior designer that has the foresight and eye for being on the "cutting edge", we can provide unbelievable specimens for your most daring and discriminating clientele.  Interior designers take note:  these remnants of prehistory are far more unique and fascinating in comparison to the clichéd overuse of man-made art, either modern or ancient, in interior design.

Each year we travel the globe to oversee several of our private collecting and preparation operations abroad as well as manage and coordinate multiple international shipments of many uncommon and exotic specimens to their final destination here in the U.S..  Much of what these operations yield for us are unique and very high quality pieces that would not be of the type or caliber typically found in the public market - show, auction or otherwise. 

This website spans many thousands of pages and yet, does not even represent 5% of what we currently have in stock.  If you are looking for a certain specimen that you do not see listed, please contact us as we always have a large number of items not yet listed and / or in various states of preparation.

New specimens are continually being added to this website, many selling within rapid order of being listed.  Because of this, we do not publish a printed catalog since much of it would be outdated before it could even be delivered.  We also do not do shows as we feel the best way to showcase these rare specimens is here online which is most secure and available around the clock, 7 days a week for all the world to see in a convenient and peaceful setting.  Our specimens are exclusively made available only through this online venue or by personal inspection at our gallery here in Florida.  

The best way to be FIRST notified of when new specimens are listed for sale is to subscribe to our email update list which can be done by clicking here.
