Fossils for Sale

Our team offers an Internet shop dedicated to fossils from Ukraine and from all world. Many exhibits from this site we found ourselves or exchanged with our colleagues. Also we are interested in cooperation with fossil dealers and propose them good discounts. The main direction of our scientific activity is the economic paleontology.


Precambrian

Our Precambrian fossils are represented by Ediacaran (Vendian) Biota (635-541 million years ago) from various quarries of Ukraine, Russia and Moldova. At our web shop can be found Nemiana, Cyclomedusa and other cyclic forms; the ancient algae Vendotaenia; the trace-like specimens Palaeopascichnus and Harlaniella; the world famous representatives of the White sea Biota such as Dickinsonia and Kimberella. There is a special category dedicated to Precambrian Problematica where we have collected all unknown and unidentified fossils and bioglyphs.



Agnatha

Agnatha is a taxon of jawless "fishes", the most primitive organisms from the subtype Craniata. Almost all of them became extinct during the Paleozoic Era. Our collection of Agnatha consists of the Devonian armored jawless "fishes" (Ostracoderms) such as Osteostraci (Stensiopelta, Ukrainaspis, Zychaspis, Zenaspis, Cephalaspis and some other Cephalaspids) and Heterostraci (Podolaspis, Zascinaspis, Pteraspis and some other Pteraspids). There are both entirely natural specimens and samples partially reconstructed.



Mammals

Our mammals are represented by all periods of the Cenosoic Era. For example the longest whales ever are Paleogene Basilosaurus. The Neogene period offers both the marine mammals (Cetotherium whales, dolphins, seals) and the land animals - the ancient Proboscidea and the Hipparion fauna. We present the first in the world professionally assembled skeleton of the Sarmatian seal Monachopsis pontica. The Pleistocene megafauna has also many famous representatives: the cave hyenas Crocuta crocuta spelaea, camels, cave bears Ursus spelaeus, bisons Bison priscus, mammoths. For the convenience of our customers we have singled out the "land mammals" and the "marine mammals" to the separated categories.



Eurypterids

Eurypterids or sea scorpions are a group of extinct sea arthropods that had mainly the predatory lifestyle. They are considered to be the ancestries of the land scorpions, their nearest relatives among the modern fauna are the horseshoe crabs called "the living fossils". The typical finds in the Silurian dolomite deposits of Ukraine are Eurypterus tetragonophtalmus (the old name before the revision is Balteurypterus tetragonophtalmus). More often in dolomite rocks can be found either the separated heads or another parts of the sea scorpions. So the fossil collectors appreciate the entire specimens and the plates with many Eurypterus tetragonophtalmus having natural limbs are museum quality exhibits. For the convenience of our customers we have made two categories: natural Eurypterus and much cheaper Eurypterus with reconstructions. Besides the quite small Eurypterids there were the champions in size among sea scorpions - Pterygotus. Their length could reach up to three meters!



Petrified wood

Our petrified wood specimens possess both collector and aesthetic value for an affordable price. The opalized wood with the wood-borer burrows is called teredo wood in honor of the Latin name of the bivalve mollusc "ship worm" Teredo sp. The malachite wood got it's name because of the malachite crystals at the specimen surfaces. The paleor.com collection presents petrified wood from Paleozoic to Neogene, the weight of some exhibits can reach hundreds of kilograms!



Ammonites

Ammonites are a group of cephalopods which have spiral shells with specific suture lines. They became extinct at the end of Mesozoic together with dinosaurs. Ammonites are the most used symbol of the paleontological associations and companies (for example our PaleoR.com). Their primitive relatives Goniatites lived as early as in Paleozoic. The base exhibits for any fossil collection are the ammonites with beautiful mineral replacements such as calcite and pyrite. Collectors especially appreciate the ammonites having bizarre shapes - heteromorphs.



Crabs

The species diversity of the Miocene crabs and crawfishes from the coral facies of the Ternopil region (West Ukraine) exceeds 20 taxa. It is even more then has the well known and good studied place in Spain. At our web page man can buy carapaces of more then 10 crab species from the Maksymivka quarry, some of them are extremely rare. For the fastidious collectors we could gather the exhibits with natural pincers and even other limbs of such crab species as Daira speciosa and Xantho moldavicus.
