About
Shanklin's original Crystal and Fossil shop. We carry one of the largest selections of Fossils, crystal and minerals on the Island with something for everyone, from young children to the serious collector. Prices start from 50p. We currently have amongst our top end stock, a very rare nest of 7 Oviraptor eggs!! Also a single Hadrosaurus egg. We also have a wonderful Tooth from the King of the Dinosaur's the Tyrannosaurus Rex!!! For those who like Trilobites we have a museum quality Walliserops Spiny Trilobite with it's unique Trident appendage. We may be small but we pack the stock in, if you cannot see it then please ask. We are also stockists for the CollectA range of model dinosaurs, one of the best ranges made. We import these ourselves, enabling us to have one of the most extensive selections in the Country.

Very disappointed
May 2018 • Family
It was our last day of our family holiday 28.05.18 and we travelled all the way to Fossil Cavern as our children really wanted a dinosaur fossil after failing to find one on the beach. After checking online we made the journey over half an hour in the wrong direction of the ferry, especially to get our two young children a fossil each only to find it was closed. On the door was a sign saying that the shop was open that day from 9-1 and we arrived around 9.45. We returned half hour later to the shop still closed and so we returned to the ferry port with two very disappointed children!!

Wow lots to look at in this shop. The lovely man was very helpful when asking questions. Really happy with my salt lamp I had purchased at such a fab price!! Can't wait to go back and have another look when we next visit the island. The kids were amazed!!

I went for a visit in the summer holidays and was very surprised on how much was in there considering the size of the shop from the outside. Very friendly and would definitely go again.

Good Little Fossil Shop
Aug 2015 • Family
This fossil shop is located on top of the hill in Shanklin high Street and is packed with goodies.
My son happily bought a 40million year old fish fossil. The owner was very helpful and I can recommend you take a look, there's plenty to see.
