EXTINCTIONS Business Services
A Division of EXTINCTIONS Fossil Company
Who is EXTINCTIONS, Inc.? EXTINCTIONS, Inc. is a business dedicated to supplying fossils to museums and collectors around the world. Our goal is to offer the highest quality products at the lowest prices possible. We have the largest, most complete, and most detailed fossil websites on the Internet. The President of EXTINCTIONS, Inc., Steve Hess, has been collecting fossils for over 40 years and has been selling fossils for over 30 years. EXTINCTIONS, Inc was formed in 1992, and is regarded as one of the premier fossil suppliers in the world. Our customers include the Smithsonian Institution, Field Museum, Royal Ontario Museum, Royal Tyrrell Museum, Philadelphia's Academy of Natural Sciences and other museums too numerous to mention. We have also donated specimens to museums, educational institutions, and thousands of teachers and children around the world.
EXTINCTIONS does much of its own field collecting and lab preparation; therefore, we are a direct source for many fossils. We collect at private sites and have our own land leased solely for fossil excavation. We also acquire many fossils in the unprepared state, and let our full time preparators do the extraction. Our labs are equipped with state-of-the-art preparation tools, which include microscopes, air abrasive equipment (mini sandblasters), and diamond saws and grinders. We also have a network of contacts worldwide that supply us with finished fossils from many regions around the globe.

EXTINCTIONS only sells REAL FOSSILS in our fossil catalogs. We guarantee every fossil we offer for sale is authentic and correctly represented. Accordingly, we do not sell fossils found on public land or acquired from questionable sources. We strive to adhere to all laws governing the collection and sale of fossils in the United States and around the world.
EXTINCTIONS knows the commercial worldwide fossil market inside and out. We are experts in grading the quality and rarity of fossils, as well as the value of these fossils. We specialize in fossil collection appraisals for tax and insurance purposes. Our consulting team is one of the most trusted in the industry. If you are looking to start a fossil business, launch a fossil website, acquire fossils for a collection or investment purposes, or looking for an appraisal of an existing fossil collection, EXTINCTIONS Business Services is your answer.
