It’s that special time of year again and we are delighted to announce that our ‘Santa’s draws’ are well and truly stocked up! If you are looking for that extra special gift for the person who has everything look no further.
Christmas is nearly upon us and we know how hectic it can get so we have made this years hunt for that special gift that little bit easier!
Dale and the team recently completed a re-decoration of our downstairs gallery. With a new lick of paint, and a touch up here & there we celebrate the transformation by welcoming some new specimens into our collection. A remarkable 12 million year old fossilised Sea Urchin bed, a rare Turonian Ammonite block, the re-introduction of one of our most elegant Palm Fronds ever, and a staggering 24-piece Fossil, Crystal & Mineral Sphere collection have all come together to breathe a new lease of life into our Pimlico home.
Here is a sneak peak at the current installation being setup at our Pimlico Road home. This is not only the largest & most spectacular specimen Dale has ever added to his collection but we believe this to be one of the most exciting finds unearthed in recent years… worldwide! We guarantee you will be blown away!!

These grizzly 8 foot beasts originate from the Carpathian Mountains in Romania and are believed to be 10,000 years Old. Here are some shots of our team setting up these remarkable creatures.

A private view evening shared with our loyal customers & friends was a perfect way to appreciate a staggering new collection that contains the largest and most impressive specimens to have ever ‘crawled’ into our Pimlico home.
During 3 weeks in May 2011 the Ammonite team worked endlessly to create a space that compliments our spectacular collection in the way it deserves. Here is an insight into the fun & games we have when moving these delicate 500kg monsters…
