Some of the reviews here, like mine, are about the fossil walks led by Paul from Jurassic Gems 9not the Old Forge). I can't find out how to review Jurassic Gems directly- they don't seem to be set up for review - so I'll add my post here. We called into Jurassic Gems (down the alley to the side of... More

The Fossil Shop is great fun to look around in, but for my husband and me the greatest thing about it is Paul Crossley.

He was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and kind about some... More
