Fake Fossils

Interesting topic featured on the weibsite of a well known fossils dealer. Worth a read since I see Chinese and other faked fossils listed frequently on eBay. Occasionally they show up on this forum under the ID section. It comes under the heading of "If it's too good to be true .... beware"

I haven't purchased a fossil since about 1970. It was a small piece of a dinosaur bone from a museum in Ohio. I'd much rather find my own. Gould's "The Lying Stones of Marrakech" opened my eyes to the problems with the fossil market.
