   Sculpted Stone Site Overview

SculptedStone.com is brought to you by EXTINCTIONS, Inc., a business dedicated to supplying fossils to museums and collectors around the world. Our goal is to offer the highest quality products at the lowest prices possible. We have one of the largest, most complete, and most detailed fossil catalogs on the Internet. We are regarded as one of the premier fossil suppliers in the world. Our customers include the Smithsonian Institution , Royal Ontario Museum , Royal Tyrrell Museum, Philadelphia's Academy of Natural Sciences and other museums too numerous to mention. We have also donated specimens to museums, educational institutions, and thousands of teachers and children around the world.

EXTINCTIONS operates eight online fossil stores, an online nature store, a fossil appraisal website, and even a wholesale fossil store. We also donate to Trilobites.info, a non-commercial, educational website dedicated exclusively to the study of trilobites. Our portal website, EXTINCTIONS.com, lists our most recent catalog updates, a "Frequently Asked Questions" (FAQ) page, trade show schedule, and our famous "Fossils of the Week", a feature that has not missed a week since 1997!

EXTINCTIONS has operated Science & Nature Stores in major shopping malls for years, and now has a large "EXTINCTIONS Store" showroom in Lancaster, PA. Our products include actual items from Nature you can't find in similar stores - a huge line of fossils, minerals, seashells, and butterflies, for example. We also carry familiar items found in similar stores - posters, t-shirts, books, music, etc. And we listen to our customers - we have exhaustively searched for, found, and stocked our store with many items that our customers requested and couldn't find anywhere else.

EXTINCTIONS does much of its own field collecting and lab preparation, therefore we are a direct source for many fossils. We collect at private sites and have our own land leased solely for fossil excavation. We also acquire many fossils in the unprepared state, and let our full time preparators do the extraction. Our labs are equipped with state-of-the-art preparation tools, which include microscopes, air abrasive equipment (mini sandblasters), and diamond grinders. We also have a network of contacts worldwide that supply us with finished fossils from many regions around the globe.

EXTINCTIONS only sells real fossils in our fossil catalogs - we do not sell ANY reproductions or replicas. We guarantee every fossil we offer for sale is authentic and correctly represented - each individual fossil comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS. Accordingly, we do not sell fossils found on public land or acquired from questionable sources. We strive to adhere to all laws governing the collection and sale of fossils in the United States and around the world.
