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.
Earlier this year Baku Magazine wrote a fantastic piece on Dale and his collection. You can read the full article here..
The guys at Wallpaper* recently used one of our pieces in their ‘Peep Show’ feature. The feature was part of the April 2014 edition and includes our stunning Mica & Tourmaline cluster from Brazil. Keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks as it will also feature in our exciting new Collection.
We know our pieces take ‘antique’ to the extreme, but they can look especially stunning in a modern, minimalist setting. We took some of our favourite specimens on location to show you how.
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 Dale’s recent feature in The Telegraph’s Luxury Homes supplement. If you happened to miss Saturday’s piece here is the interview in full.
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!!
On a recent trip to Southern Morocco we were fortunate enough to not only select a new Trilobite collection but also witness these 360 Million year old creatures being prepared. With equipment that would flatter most dentists and the patience that could match a Shaolin Monk these extraordinary craftsmen are amongst the finest fossil preparers in the world. Hours, days and sometimes weeks of preparation time can be spent on just one fist sized Trilobite if the piece spectacular enough. Read more…
It had long been an ambition of Dale’s to return to the Orthoceras marble quarries of Tazarine that first ignited his passion for natural art some 25 years ago. A five day road journey that can rival the most picturesque drives in the world enabled us to take in Mother Nature’s finest offerings.

This new collection includes a 10 Million year old perfectly preserved Crab, the radiant coral-like mineral Aragonite, the beautifully peculiar Pyrite & Calcite flowers and a muscle making 13kg Meteorite Cube from Sweden.
This year why go for ephemeral flowers and uninspiring chocolates when you can invest in these exquisite carved Pyrite and Agate hearts. Dazzling minerals found deep in the South American landscape (the Pyrite has come from Peru and the Agate has come from Brazil) provide rare and unique Valentine’s gifts for those looking for something extra special.
Dale and long time associate photographer Craig Lynn recently got together to create purpose built sets that display our pieces in situ.

The beauty of this shoot is that every piece you see before you is available…
What better way can you symbolise christmas by having two Ice Age Romanian Cave Bears standing proudly in our festive window display??!
To find a complete Cave Bear skeleton itself is something of a rarity but to come by two at the same time is a first for our collection. 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.
