We source our products from all over the world. We have spent a great deal of time over the years finding reliable and trustworthy suppliers to provide us with quality fossil and mineral products.

Yes. British Fossils only sell genuine fossils, we do not sell replicas. All of our minerals are also genuine although some have been colour-enhanced to highlight their natural beauty.

Our rocks, minerals and fossils, although attractive and educational, are all ‘common’ and occur in essentially inexhaustible quantities. Any specimens we come across that are rare or of scientific value are donated to museums.

Very little of our material derives from living plants and animals and we refuse to work with any materials, such as coral or whole shells, which could have an environmental impact.

Wherever possible, the Company Directors have visited and inspected the mines and factories that produce our goods worldwide to ensure that strict standards are adhered to with regards to working conditions, health and safety, child labour and similar issues.
