Welcome to the whole world of fossils
What we stand for
Through decades of work in the research, preparation and sale of fossils, we stand for sustainability, traceability and, above all, for a scientific foundation to our work.
The respect for a million-year-old fossil characterizes our work and our actions.
Our aim is to offer the story of the fossil in addition to the cleanly prepared fossil. This means, through paleontological expertise, to tell you the "history behind history", suggest possible ways of presenting and develop overall concepts around the fossil.
Our scientific cooperation with large museums also makes it possible for us to help them create their own exhibitions.
The theme of "Fossil in Art and Fashion" also plays a role here. For at Fossga, we will search with you for the last secrets of the history of our earth and draw conclusions about the present.
Combining tradition and passion
From a collection to a worldwide operating company
The founding of the FOSSGA fossil gallery in 1984 was inevitable. After some international excursions and excavations, Dr Thomas Perner, the fossil enthusiast, had amassed a collection of fossils, which needed a gallery.
Our own quarries
Meanwhile, the company owns fossil quarries in Europe and the USA.

Cooperation with institutions
In recent decades, the scientific community has, through close cooperation with international institutions, been able to present spectacular findings, which provide missing links in the history of the development of life.
History was rewritten.
One of the most famous fossils is the Lemur "Ida" which can be viewed in the Natural History Museum in Oslo / Norway.

FOSSGA also set international standards in the preparation of fossils. Among other things, the first-ever Germany-wide use of sandblasting to prepare the fossil discoveries from Bundenbach.
We are especially proud of the fact that we enjoy the trust of international museums, to prepare fossils to order.

Art & Fashion
Over 40,000 years ago, Homo sapiens tried for the first time to create art. First small mammoths were carved, cave paintings were completed.
We also follow this long tradition at FOSSGA.
Merging recycling and sustainable items from nature into a picture or a piece of clothing. Motifs from prehistoric times on high-quality fabric or on canvas.
Art is timeless like our fossils,
For this reason, we have built a bridge back into the past with our collection "Fossga-Casual" Million Years Fashion.
The artist Mona Seckendorf has successfully integrated the colours from nature with elements of rust in her art. This is her contribution to the sustainability of nature.
