What is a fossil?
Fossils are remains of plants and animals that lived in prehistoric times. Fossils are created when an organism dies and the remains are covered with water and layers of sediment. Only the hard parts of the organism that are covered with sediment go on to form the fossil. Fossils can also be preserved in a resin that is dripped on the plant or animal. After millions of years the remains of the organism are petrified and a fossil is created.
Often the process of fossilization is stunning, leaving a perfectly recognizable organism which is very decorative. This beautiful symbol of life, immortalized by petrification, appeals to many. You can learn more about our online collection of fossils.
