Welcome to Fossil Cavern

Visiting the Isle of Wight? Visit our retail store, Fossil Cavern, Shanklins Original Fossil and Crystal shop. First opened in 2004. Located on the edge of Shanklin Old Village, we stock an impressive selection of fossils, minerals and crystals to suit everyone from pocket money pieces to museum quality specimens, alongside jewellery and associated giftware.


Our range of fossils, minerals and crystals include many unusual pieces for the amateur or more experienced collector.   From Ammonites to Dinosaur Eggs, Amethyst to Sapphires - almost anything can be obtained, so if you are searching for a particular item please contact us with your requirements and if it is not in stock then we will try to source it for you from one of our many worldwide suppliers.

We also stock a wide range of children's educational items - fossil and mineral packs and booklets, dinosaur toys and games and the exciting dinosaur model range by CollectA including some that we import ourselves as they are not available in the UK!

Our jewellery and giftware section includes competitively priced sterling silver pendants and earrings, gem bracelets and necklaces together with gemstone, onyx or fossilstone gifts for that unusual present idea.
