JUAN EMMANUEL posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionHey guys I remember the ROM has on display a slab cast of Mistaken Point, Newfoundland fossils on the Dawn of Life Preview Gallery. Being an admirer of Mistaken Point is there a place where we could perhaps get these replicas? Or are collectors allowed to go to Mistaken Point and take casts of the fossils there for keepsakes? I understand no one is allowed to take fossils there due to government laws so I am hoping that casts are an excellent alternative for amateur collectors.
