It's slow at the shop today (the area's first snow of the season), so I got bored and went surfing. I stumbled across this site >Primitive Worlds<, which I had not heard of before, and which I found pretty interesting!

Paul Chinnici is the owner operator there. He's a great guy, very helpful and extremely knowledgeable about Silurian NY fossils.

The 'Classic Photos' section is absolutely bursting at the seams with world class specimens. Great Link - Thanks Auspex!

I've been admiring these fossils for a while. Would love to get some of the specimens but they are a bit pricier than I can afford at this time.

What a great discovery, Auspex. There's obviously a real expertise at work there, as the fantastic quality of the specimens shows. Thanks for sharing this with those of us who knew nothing about it.
