Edinburgh's famous fossil shop has been trading at 5 Cowgatehead since 1987. We have built an international reputation for quality fossils, minerals and meteorites from all over the world. We go out of our way to hand pick our stock as much as possible, and try to get as close to the original sources as we can to ensure we always have a big range of great value and high quality fossils for sale.
Browse our collections of ammonites, trilobites and dinosaur fossils for sale in our online fossil shop. Only a small selection of our stock is shown, so if you can't see what you're looking for, please let us know. Remember, there are plenty of minerals and meteorites for sale, too.
In recent years we've added a couple of cabinets of jewellery, and we now have a reasonable range. The obvious starting point was amber but over time we've branched into simple, silver-set mineral pendants, meteorite jewellery and anything we can find that uses fossils as a focus.
Our customer care is important to us, and we will make sure online buyers will receive the same level of service they would in the shop. We'll take care to pick nice examples to send you and they'll be well packed to keep them safe in the post. We welcome questions, so if you are concerned about exactly what you're buying, want to know more about international shipping, any dinosaur fossils for sale, our trilobites or anything at all, please get in touch.
You'll notice our Facebook feed over there on the right. I try to post something geologically relevent most days, with news stories on fossils, volcanoes, dinosaurs, and the like. Additionally, I usually take pictures of new stock, interesting pieces and so on. So it's a good way to get current information on both the shop and fossils in general.
