Fossil casts, also called fossil replicas or reproductions, allow students, collectors, scientists, and others interested in prehistoric life to handle and study precise reproductions of interesting and valuable fossils without risking damage to the originals (which often are unavailable for purchase, or would cost many times more). The museum-quality fossil replicas from PaleoScene include a variety of well-preserved and historically important specimens from several different geologic periods. Each is carefully cast in high-strength gypsum cement from molds of the original specimens, and meticulously hand painted to replicate the natural appearance of the original specimen. Resin composition is available at additional cost (please contact us for resin composition quotes). The dinosaur skin and placoderm casts come with felt pads on the bottom; most others include wire hangers on the back. All include full identification labels. Discounts for teachers and educational organizations. We accept payment by check, money order, or PayPal. Dealer inquiries welcome.

TO ORDER, simply email us at gkpaleo@yahoo.com, indicating the items you are interested in. We will get back to you promptly with shipping options and costs. Thanks!
