Featured New Items at The Fossil Cartel
Since 1989, The Fossil Cartel has been selling world-class jewelry, minerals, crystals, fossils, and meteorites from around the world. Featuring the largest selection in the Pacific Northwest, and stones unique to Oregon and the area, we cordially invite you to visit us in downtown Portland, Oregon.
Over 25 years ago we began with a cart in a suburban shopping mall, moved downtown to The Galleria for 14 years, then to Pioneer Place for 11 years, and now occupy a storefront in the historic Gilbert Building in the heart of downtown Portland. Over 25 years we have developed a deep and varied inventory of the best material out there. Most of our merchandise is hand-picked for top quality.
The Fossil Cartel specializes in items such as Mt. St. Helen’s Obsidianite. When Mt. St. Helen’s erupted in 1981, pulverized rock blasted out. When heated, this material fuses into a gorgeous translucent stone of a rich emerald color – Emerald Obsidianite. Identical in color to emeralds, it’s a bonafide piece of Mt. St. Helen’s!
The Fossil Cartel also carries a large inventory of Oregon Opal. Oregon Opal is a unique variety of opal found in only one place in the world – Opal Butte, OR. When faceted, Oregon Opal flashes dusky blue-violet or yellow-orange. In our free-form pendants, Oregon Opal is transparent, resembling an underwater scene.
Many of our customers are from out of town. We want our our merchandise to be available to travelers once they return home. This site contains only a fraction of what you can find in our store. If there is something you are interested in but do not see here, please do not hesitate to email us and ask about it. Customer service is our highest priority!
The Fossil Cartel offers the largest selection of jewelry, minerals, crystals, fossils, and meteorites in the Pacific Northwest, and features stones unique to the region.
