  1. Hi, I am new here and just starting to find and purchase fossils for my collection. Up until now, everything I have purchased appears to be legit. Today, however, I just received a fossil that is not even the same rock as shown in the original auction photos. The first thing I noticed is that the fossil was leaving black marks, almost like a pencil would, on white paper. I decided to wash it off and saw a few patches that were a completely different color of grey and looked like a glue/putty material. Restoration, maybe? This grey stuff was soft and easily scraped off with a razor blade. Later, after I had it all washed off, I compared it to the original auction photos, and I realized that this is not even the same fossil. It's too bad because now I am not able to show before and after photos of the fossil that I received, though I will show the photos from the auction listing. Original auction photos:
  2. Advice on Drotops Trilobite

    Hello all. I just wanted some advice on this drotops megalomanicus that I am considering adding to my collection. How is the prep work on it? It is 4.25 inches, which I thought was large. Would you go for it if you were me?
  3. Beautiful Drotops's

    Hello, everyone I'm a new member located in Korea, South and highly interested in collecting Moroccan trilobites. We all know there are tons of fake specimens out there and I picked some good quality ones that seems to be genuine or partially restored. Here are the photos and I hope to share this images as well as yours. Just seeing such specimens is always exciting 'Enrolled' Drotops Armatus Huge sized 6.2 inch Drotops Megalomanicus Another huge sized 6.2 inch Drotops Megalomanicus
  4. May Santa bring that fossil you always wish for.
  5. drotops megalomanicus?

    Just curios as to what species this is I looked at phacops but non seem to have such defined bumps for a better word also the eyes don't match up at least not to the ones I have looked at. Again questioning this id because what is exposed so far is rather small 0.86" by 0.80" and the size of the matrix block is 2.51" by 2.34" Also I am prepping this currently so not fully exposed yet don't know if that will hinder the possibility of confirming an id. Thanks Matt
  6. Trilobite drotops Fake?

    Hi guys, Recently I purchased my first fossil and was wondering if it's a fake as it was listed on the auction site as coming from Morocco and was fairly preserved and cheap as compared to others. It's a 3.3" Drotops Megalomanicus and has a crack going through the cephalon and the matrix all the way. I don't see any reasons to believe it was glued to the matrix and eyes have details as shown. Don't see many scratches so it's probably painted Thanks!
  7. Hey everyone! New here. I have a lovely collection of trilobites and have recently purchased a large Devonian Phacops (according to description). He's over 14cm long as you can see by the photo on my hand so I wanted to check its authenticity. I've noted the nice eye detail which I know can be hard to fake. It's a VERY smelly fossil though (actually making me sneeze). Almost a cross between plaster and laundry detergent. Is there anything that could cause this if it's genuine? I will assume it's had small cosmetic enhancements but I cannot find any cracks on the matrix etc. Not even sure what the matrix is made of but it's a glittery beige. Also, would this be a phacops or would it be classed as a drotops? Thanks in advance!
  8. Happy New Year

    May 2018 be your best collecting year ever.
