Wasn't sure which specific forum to put this in.

Does anyone here have any experience with exporting a personal collection of fossils? Does the UK have any specific UK rules that apply to fossils? The gov.uk website isn't very clear on the subject.

My wife has a collection and is emigrating to the United States. She is worried about packing her fossils and having them confiscated.

Thanks

I don't know about fossils but I do know that with some items that are considered of national importance have to have an export licence. So if you have something rare and unusual or museum-worthy that rule might possibly apply. HM Customs should be able to advise it I'm confident you'll have no problems.
