We were brought here as part of a packaged tour, and it is definitely worth the visit. They show you the process of cutting the stone and finding the fossils through polishing them and turning them into beautiful objects like table tops and plates and jewelry. They speak great English and the prices seemed reasonable.

We were brought here by our tour guide and it was a very interesting and informative experience. It's hard to believe that these beautiful objects are real and we bought items for ourselves as well as for gifts since they are so unique and wonderful conversations pieces. We enjoyed seeing how the raw slabs are turned into everything from plates... More

Due to this area being in a principal fossil area what can be seen and bought here is very extensive. An eye opener of quality fossils.

My wife found this place really fascinating . . . the idea that these are fossils of creatures that lived 300 plus million years ago and now they're made into beautiful objects. The staff gives you information on how the rocks are cut and demonstrates how they are polished. Very low-key in the sales room which is very welcomed.

This was a fascinating place to visit simply because I learned so much. For instance, the area in which it is located was once an ocean millions of years ago and that's where the fossils come from. The slabs were magnificent and you could clearly see the fish, snails, etc. in them. There is a gift shop--isn't there always--where you... More

We visited Macro Fossiles in May, 2016. We were very impressed with the tour offered and the explanation as to how the former sea basin became the site of the fossils. The tour also clearly demonstrated the extraction and preparation of the fossil-based pieces. Finally, having purchased a number of pieces, we were very pleased at how well packaged they... More

The guide showed us how they extract the fossils from the huge rocks. There are cutting and polishing steps that were very interesting. The different fossils are very interesting. I bought several for my grandsons and they loved them. They tell you that the prices are fixed but when I was interested in several items all of a sudden the... More

Fun offerings of fossils and minerals mined locally. Shop offers everything from paperweights to tables, sinks and wall art all made from stone with imbedded fossils. Very low pressure sales people were helpful in explaining what was imbedded. If possible, ask for a tour of the yard where they cut and polish the stone.
