Eight fossils to start a child’s fossil collection.

These are wonderful fossils presented in a beginners Fossil Collector Frame. The frame is eye appealing but also protects the fossils inside. The fossils include A fern form Illinois. Two Shark teeth from Florida, a Blastoid from Indiana. And also includes a shell from Michigan, Turtle poo from Madagascar, a crinoid stem from Kentucky. The frame also has a clam from Michigan and mammal bone fragments from South Dakota.

The beginners Fossil Collector Frame is a handsome leatherette case with a glass top. Because the fossils are a little fragile they sit on foam batting inside. The frame is 6 inches by 8 inches long and about 3/4 of an inch high.

This Fossil Collector Frame consist of real fossils. Because these fossils come from around the U.S. they are not easily available. So here is your chance to get a great starter collection.

Fossils form mostly because of the hard parts of the animal. Soft tissues rare become fossils, but sometimes some soft tissues are found. The usual way fossils form is by mineral replacement. Water is usually involved in that process because the fossil has to be buried. It is buried in mineral rich sediments and then as the animal decays it is replaced by minerals that surround the animal.
