TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

This weekend is your last chance to see some amazing fossilized skeletons - a 26-foot long Triceratops, two huge woolly mammoths, and a T-rex skull to name a few.  

GeoDecor has opened its 4,000 square foot showroom to the public through Sunday, Feb. 12.  The showroom is located at the Mineral and Fossil Co-op, 1635 N. Oracle Road, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

An enormous Tyrannosaurus rex skull from Montana boasts rare ornamental skull bones and neck vertebrae. It is exceptionally well-preserved, prepared and mounted. 

A gigantic, 26-foot-long Triceratops known as Bob is a highlight of GeoDecor's display. Stunning in its completeness, Bob is also astonishingly large, even for a Triceratops. Excavated in Bowman County, North Dakota, the individual lived at the end of the Cretaceous, in one of the herds that were thought to have fed near the shorelines of the intracontinental seaway, which isolated the western half of North America from the rest of the continent.

Visitors can also enjoy the spectacular offerings of other dealers at The Mineral and Fossil Co-op - sparkling quartz crystal specimens from a famous American mine; fine amethyst geodes replete with deep purple crystals from the highly regarded Minas Gerais locality in Brazil; colorful, finely polished petrified wood slabs and tabletops; a myriad of fossils and fossil stone decorative items from Morocco in an extensive price range - to name a few.
 
All fossil preparation work at GeoDecor, Inc. follows scientific and technical guidelines set forth by the Association of Applied Paleontological Sciences. GeoDecor’s fossil preparation specialists are trained and supervised directly by President, Thomas E. Lindgren, who maintains close contact with the scientific community and regularly consults with museums and scientists. 
 
The phenomenal finds will be on public display daily through this weekend only and are offered for sale by GeoDecor, Inc., www.GeoDecor.com, a Tucson company providing fossils and minerals to collectors, interior designers and museums internationally, and twelve other dealers of fine minerals and fossils from all over the world.
