What a great unique place to spend an hour or 2. Decided to take my folks for something different and came across the Florissant Fossil Quarry. This is a family owned property and not a commercially run operation. The cost is $10 per hour per person. They supply you with everything you need to split the shale. The "quarry" is roped off as the staff bring out the shale to put in piles to dry. I guess wet shale does not split well. Withing 15 minutes we had found fossils of leaves and a bug. All total we walked away with about a dozen fossils. There is someone there to help identify what you find. Great fun. We will return!!!
Fantastic place. A true Fossil hounds paradise. Not touristy, barely any infrastructure but none is needed. Crazy cheap and unlimited hunting. The owner was very nice and helpful. Highly recommend
It’s a great family fun activity that doesn’t break the bank. You can break rocks all day and find a bunch of leaf and bug fossils. The review from someone saying “it took 5 min to realize there weren’t any fossils” is an idiot because they’re not handed to you. You have to dig for them and keep an eye out while digging. Great place and we plan to make more visits!
very awesome found only leaves while there nothing too exciting but when I left had bought two bags of shale to take home and when I was patiently splitting the layers piece by piece I happened to rarely find a perfect fossil of what looks like a mosquito of some sort was the best find yet. I am an avid gem collector and digger with an eye for old petrified/opalized wood being in Littleton Colorado I even find amazonite(Blue Microcline) in the river at Belview park a total of 8 pieces so far very hard to spot. The world is full of geological features that continue to unfold and burp up through the earths surface. I have also found a lot of very cool looking obsidian in different colors like black and fluorescent green bands looking like a rock from another planet.Their is always new run off from the mountains providing gem after gems
A younger guy was running it when we went and was very helpful. Well worth it. We do a lot of digging for gem stones ourselves, it nice to see good people making this open to the public.
