Ah, that's a nice in-situ shot

I'm sure the echinoid will look even better once prepped!

Congrats on finding it!

Thanks :)

In fact this echinoid is still in the field.

The sediment of the matrix is very hard and I have to go back to remove it.

Wow ... and it looks so fragile in the photo. Like someone just planted it there and it's growing up through the soil. Beautiful...

These rocks have a first layer that looks like paper and then underneath it has a very hard limestone. Very difficult to remove the fossil without damaging. see this example below in the same location:

Woah .... yes I see now ... definitely not a rock that is ready to give up its treasures easily.
