The Fossil Cartel has all the display stands you’ll need!
These display stands come in an assortment that let you display 3 dimensional, flat slabs, egg and sphere specimens. There are also magnifying boxes as well as stands that will light your specimen from behind or underneath. Acrylic stands come in clear or black. A few pluses for the acrylic stands are: you hardly notice them when cradling your specimen, they are relatively inexpensive and there is a big assortment to choose from. Prices range from .75 and up.
Wrought Iron Stands
Wrought iron display stands add a little elegance to your specimen. The nice thing about these is they are made of natural metal ores that also come from the Earth, adding to the natural theme. They are relatively inexpensive as well. There are three styles available: two for slabs and one for spheres and eggs. The ones for spheres and eggs can be used upside down for 3 dimensional specimens. They look especially nice with fish fossils. Prices start at $2.50 and up.
Wooden Cobra Stands
These stands are something to marvel at. They are carved from one piece of wood, but how they do it is a puzzle to us because it looks impossible! These are great for three dimensional specimens and spheres. They are inexpensive and since they are wood, go nicely with the natural theme. Prices start at $1.50.
Below are some of our favorites! They go by the names “Offering Hands” and “Helping Hands.” These hand stands are made right here in Oregon! The manufacturer keeps the material they’re made from a secret, but they are of a durable and off-white substance. The details in the hands are phenomenal! You can see the fingernails and wrinkles. The hand stands are perfect for smaller specimens. The larger offering hands are also great for spheres. They’re a nice gift for a massage therapist or someone who uses their hands a lot. Prices start at $10.
We have a large assortment of stands for all of your specimens. Stands are hard to find elsewhere and so we are happy to provide you with the ones that will suit your needs. See more often at our Instagram page.
