This is where they bring big slabs of rock from the local mountains to slice them up to find and create fossil slabs. Trilobytes, ammonites, and other creatures from 100's of million years ago are found in these rocks. This is the "factory", where you...More

I bought a slab for $800. They told me they'd ship it in a couple of weeks and I'd receive it within 6 weeks or so. When the six weeks were up, I emailed them and said it was on its way. In fact it...More

This is an amazing place to visit. First we were introduced to the raw and unpolished slabs of rock containing fossils. These rocks were dug from the surrounding areas by the owner of this shop. At first glance, they didn’t look very impressive. But when...More

The Macro Fossiles Kasbab is well worth a visit. Our tour guide assured us this was one of the best places to visit to see the whole production process from excavation of ancient fossils to the resulting decorative products. Well worth it.
