Natural History

The Bonhams Natural History auctions feature an extraordinarily wide range of categories including: mineral specimens; fossils, including dinosauria, petrified wood, amber and ammolite; unmounted faceted gemstones, including rare phenomenal gemstones; gold; meteorites; lapidary, archeological stone artifacts; mounts and animal, plant, insect and shell specimens, pearls and coral, and natural history-related decor and curiosities.

With consignments culled from private collections, paleontologists, fossil preparators, quarry and mine owners, the auctions are successful in providing specimens that are fresh to the market and have firmly established Bonhams as the forerunner in the field internationally.
