  1. Hi, i want ideas how to display this tooth to see better the crown.
  2. Hello everyone, I recently acquired a monstrously huge Mosasaurus beaugei skull which I would like to display in my house The skull measures 170 cm / 67" and weights 85 kg /187 lbs Does anyone have similar fossils which they mounted on their walls, or displayed in their cabinets? Thank you.

    My humble little collection

    I was given a bag of fossils by a family friend, somewhere around 1985, and I absolutely cherished them when I was a boy. I was all in on fossils and dinosaurs. Fast forward all these years and I stumbled upon this old bag of fossils and my 5 year old son was enthralled by what he found in that old bag. He loves dinosaurs and sharks, like any 5 year old boy, and this was just the spark he and I needed to start a new collection. Our first piece was the 4.75 inch meg tooth in the middle. I follow a guy on Instagram and he found this off the coast of Florida, in an area close t

    Displaying Amber

    Hi everyone, I have a habit of framing my best fossils. However, I found quite a bit that are so tiny, I’m not exactly sure how to frame them. First off, the fossils are Amber. I found a bunch of tiny pieces while I was cleaning my room in the bottom of a bin. I actually didn’t know I had them. I confirmed it was Amber today by doing multiple tests. I’m trying to figure out how to frame these. Part of me wants to encase the amber in resin, then frame that. However, I’m not sure if this is advisable. Can someone give me an opinion or advice on ho

    The Creekend Warrior Collection

    Been at it for about a year now and I try to hit the creeks at least twice/month if I can help it. The "loose" pics are either newer finds that haven't made their way into the display yet, or finds that have their own display. Most of these were rescued from the Gainesville area. Some are from the Peace River & Joshua Creek, as well as Manasota, Caspersen, Venice & Fort Clinch beaches. I was also lucky enough to discover a previously unknown spot VERY close to home, while scouting one day! Dr. Hulbert (w/ UF) confirmed it is a new spot, but was reluctant to c
  6. I know next to nothing about radioactivity-- enough to know licking fossils is inadvisable, although I'll admit that wasn't terribly disappointing news. What I'm wondering is whether specimens not radioactive enough to endanger a person are capable of damaging other specimens. Is there a need to segregate displays here, or am I just confused about the mechanics of this? My specific reason for asking is that at the moment I'm planning for my current favorite mineral specimen (which I am babying forever), an almandine garnet from Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia, to share a small shelf ar
  7. Finally got the display ready for a large pliosaurus jaw section and tooth fragment (pliosaurus kevani) from Kimmeridgian Clay, Weymouth Bay, Dorset UK Smaller tooth fragment in individual case is Pliosaurus Ferox from Oxford Clay, Peterborough UK 160 million years ago attached close up pictures below thanks for looking! Happy collecting!
  8. Hi all I thought I would do a “show us your handmade display of stands” . I think it would be beneficial to collate all the wonderful display stands in one thread. If you do contribute to this thread it would be really useful if you can give some top tips and some pictorial info of how you made it. Also please add some pictures of the beautiful fossil , mineral or any other object you display on them. If you have already made a post and perhaps you would prefer to add a link instead. So if you have got some handmade stands out of wood, drift wood, iron, wire, acrylic , stone or upcycled
  9. I have searched the site and had a read of a few threads regarding Riker boxes in the UK dating back to 2017. I have dealt with Just in case for a few years now and they have decided to call it a day since the increase in shipping costs recently. They might start up again if the costs come down. So this leaves me a problem as I sell all my fossil teeth etc in Riker boxes, I bought all his remaining stock but that wont last long! Did anyone in the UK have any luck with finding a supplier? I might end up going down the import route, if so I will have an ask around on here to see if I
  10. I have a mini fossil display setup at my workplace. This little display brings lots of attention from other employees. Most didn't know this area was under water in the past.
  11. Does anyone know of a source for a small magnifying box/case where I can display small micro fossils? Thanks in advance.
  12. I am not sure how niche of a topic this will end up being and if anyone other than myself will really post on here, but I thought that it still might be worth a try. I really enjoy 3D modeling and printing as a hobby and find that it often comes in handy when dealing with certain problems around collecting, organizing, displaying of fossils. Some of these designs I have come up with myself while others have been heavily inspired by other people's projects and I thought that creating a single place to share all my 3D prints related to this may be helpful or inspiring to others.
  13. The first (and only- for now) Oreodont skull I prepped was in remarkably good condition and required virtually no reconstruction, just a thorough and careful cleaning + a little stabilizing. Afterwards I was looking for a good way to display this little skull in a manner where it wouldn't just be sitting on a flat surface. I'm not great at bending metal to create an elevated cradle so I came up with this: I laid a sheet of plastic wrap on the underside of the skull and gently pressed Apoxie sculpt on top of the plastic so it molded to the contours of the skull. I then pressed a met
  14. Hi everyone, I've been struggling to find a way to display three associated Desmatosuchus sp. spikes from the Bull Canyon Formation, New Mexico. I decided to try using polymer clay but the block was very tough to manipulate. I'm also not 100% sure that it's safe to use in direct contact with a fossil due to the oil nature of it but I'm assuming once hardened it should be fine. My next concern is to ensure any accidental jostling doesn't cause the fossils to fall out. I've had mixed results with sticky tact; it eventually melts into some goo over time. Does anyone have any recommend
  15. Hey guys! As some of you may know I run a paleontology education program. I take real fossils to schools and libraries. I've been over the years collecting things to make a mobile pop up museum. All that being said... I've been wanting to make a display of fossils from really weird animals that we can find fossils of. So far I have an edestus tooth and finally got myself a Tully Monster today. I am having trouble coming up with ideas, and as I have dealt mostly with dinosaur fossils, I am hoping to have the help of some of my fellow forum members who have a broader knowledge base t

    Nature center exhibit of my collection
  17. Hi everyone, So, I am moving soon and I was able to get a wonderful cabinet curio with a display case. I have a few fossils that I want to display in there as somewhat of a "mini museum". I know that there are fossil stands for ammonites and shark teeth but I cant for the life of me think of a way to display a few large Pleistocene material that I have, such as a mammoth tooth and bison horn core seen below: Would anyone have any suggestions? thank you!

  19. In my collection, I'm starting to focus more on dinosaur teeth. Right now they're just laying on top of my bookshelf that I display my fossils in. I'm thinking of maybe doing floating frame display cases or riker cases. Does anybody have any suggestions about how to display them?

    Secure display case

    Does anyone worry that their greatest "treasures" will get stolen if they are displayed openly in your house, and you go away on vacation? So far, I have not been willing to set the few fossils I have out on our furniture. What do you do when you are away from home? Does anyone have a security-type display case with shatterproof glass to deter thieves? Just wondering.

    My small collection

    Been awhile since I posted my collection. It has grown quite a bit over the years, what do you guys think?
  22. I'm not sure which category this would fit best in, so I'll put it here. @Bobby Rico in another thread got me thinking about labels directly on specimens, what with the appeal of old labels on specimens from historic collections and other considerations. I figured it couldn't hurt to attach labels directly onto some specimens (with more than the catalogue number that I put on all of my specimens) so that whoever ends up with them after I part with them, whether museum or private collector, would actually have to put some effort into scraping off the label to lose the provenance info! I ha

    Foam inserts for small containers

    Hello all. I’m wondering if anyone knows of a source in the US for sheets or rolls of soft EVA foam that I can cut to size for the bottoms of various small plastic specimen containers. I’m looking for something no more than about 6mm in thickness (not “foam paper” or “foam core”). Althor used to sell exactly what I need, but the minimum order is now $100, and I won’t use that much foam in the rest of my life. Thanks much for any help or leads. Wendell

    Tips on displaying?

    So i got some display cabinets but i'm not sure how to display it. I have many bought fossils and found. I got shark teeth mostly, But also amber, Fish, Dino, Reptiles and more. So i wonder how you guys display your fossils? Maybe post some pictures? So i can get some inspiration.

    Fossil display!

    Hi! So I have been planning on adding some legs to this shelf (I use this shelf as a display because I can't afford anything better right now) because it is really short and it's not very nice to have to sit on the ground to look at your fossils. So I finally put some legs on it! It's not amazing looking and not very big and you do have to bend over a little bitt to look at the fossils up close but it will have to do. I also need some more fossils (I am saving up for a nice unprepared oreodont skull so I'm not going to be able to buy very many for the next few months).
