Our featured product lines:

Fluorescent fossils, minerals, & lights

Great news, we relocated about two years ago and have been out of pocket as far as the web site goes since.  We are currently in the  process of adding two years of product and we have some fantastic additions.  Please visit often to see how the progression is going.  Have you found the new items and pages yet?  There are many of them!  Thanks for visiting our site and enjoy the hunt!

Welcome to TLZ Enterprises. Our goal is to offer quality products at reasonable prices. Our museum-quality, research grade fossil replicas (sold under the PaleoImages™ name) are cast with the highest quality materials available and hand painted with artist oil paints and stains for a realistic finish. Our replicas are great teaching aids and reference pieces. Whether you are studying the skeletal anatomy of Archaeopteryx or teaching trilobites and other invertebrates to a classroom of students, our replicas can make the job easier and more enjoyable. Our replicas are also a great educational alternative for furnishing your walls at home or in the office. They look great in your office, den, family room, and bath. Or just about anywhere that you want something different.  Since our replicas are hand painted with artist oils and stains, each piece is an original painting.  Our canvas just happens to be in the shape of a fossil.  All of our casts are copyrighted.  Copyright infringements will be pursued legally.

Our clothing items (sold under the Lithocanis™ name) are well made, and selected with the rockhound in mind. Each piece bears the Lithocanis™ trade mark.

We have custom jewelry items made with real fossils. Most pieces are wire wrapped.

If you are looking for fossil sets, look no further. You probably won't find a larger set than ours anywhere. Our larger sets are being used by colleges for course study and by individuals interested in learning about fossils, starting a collection of fossils, or adding to an existing collection.  To see which fossils are in our sets, go to the fossil set section for a current listing of what is in our sets.

We added fluorescent minerals and equipment to our site during 2009/2010.  This seemed like a logical addition since, because of the replacement minerals, some fossils fluoresce.  This line will be expanded as items can be obtained.  This part of the web site is the newest area of the site and will take a while to develop.  Please be patient and check back periodically.  In the mean time enjoy the rest of the site and look for other new items and information.

Originally we thought about telling you each month where we added new items.  Upon further consideration we felt it might be more fun for you to find the new items and information on your own.  We have  enough ideas and items to cover at least the next twelve months and that gives us plenty of time to come up with more specimens and information to add to our current data base as time goes on.  We hope that you will return often and enjoy the treasure hunt as much as we enjoy finding items and information to bring to you.  Happy hunting!

Special note:

Some of our customers have indicated that they have had difficulty purchasing from this web site.  We use PayPal to process payments for our products.  PayPal is a secured site for payment processing.  Simply select the items you wish to purchase and either view basket as often as necessary or proceed to check out at the yellow bar at the top right of the screen.  You do not need to create an account to purchse products on this site, you may place an order without an account by clicking on this line at the next screen.  The next screen will show what you want to purchase and the related cost.  Also, it asks for Ship to information and Bill to information (if different), such as if you are sending a gift to someone.  The next screen will recap the shipping and billing information, show your purchases and cost, show your shipping costs and allow you to select how you want to pay for your purchase (in this case your present option is PayPal).  The next page is pretty much a repeat of the prior page (do check over the information to make certain everything is correct).  You can always go back and fix a problem.  The next page is the PayPal page.  As you can see from the https coding at the top of the page, the site is secured for payment.  If you have a PayPal account you can log into PayPal in the indicated box.  If you don't (and I don't), just simply select Continue to use your credit or debit card for payment.  The next page will ask you for your credit information.  Again check any information fed back to you to make certain that it is correct.  The expiration is a 4 digit number and  the CSC # is the last 3 digits on the back of your card.  PayPal can be kind of quirky at times.  When I tracked a purchase through the system, it indicated that I had typed invalid characters in my name and would not continue until I selected change under the name and address and retyped it.  PayPal accepted the retyped name (exactly as it had been previously) and proceeded to the next page.  Go figure!  The next screen is just a PayPal promotion; hit continue to proceed.  The next page asks you to check your order.  If everything is correct hit the Pay Now button.  The last page thanks you for your order and allows you to print your receipt.  If you gave an email address you will also be sent information to that address.  Your order should be processed within a couple of days.  PayPal can be quirky at times, but if you address any issues which it thinks it has, you should be able to place the order successfully.  If there are any problems, please feel free to contact us directly or by email.  Your input and business are important to us.  Thank you!  Please enjoy the rest of our site.
