The Fossil Prep Station is a non-solid foreground block that was added as part of the Growassic Park update.


When a Fossil or Polished Fossil is put into a Fossil Prep Station, the block will turn on, showing a small yellow light. After a short period that can range anywhere from one hour to a single day, the light will turn green, signifying that the fossil has been fully disolved. Punching the Fossil Prep Station (as long as the player has access) will then give the player one of the following fossil-related items:

  • Should a player attempt to retrieve their Fossil or Polished Fossil before it has finished dissolving, they will say, "There's a fossil being prepared in there. You'll have to wait to break this or you'd lose the fossil!"
  • Harvesting a Fossil Prep Station with a full inventory will cause the reward to be dropped on the same tile as the block.
