Identification help, the microscope picture is pretty bad but it is a handheld and my cell phone, hopefully this helps though. I rinsed this stone in a 70% muriatic acid and water solution, initially it was smooth but once rinsed with the acid water solution it became very rough like sandpaper. The crystals that have been exposed on the surface jut outwardly, perpendicular from the surface, some are tetragonal or trclinic and some are orthorhombic or monoclinic in shape, it is hard to tell with my microscope.
This tooth can be cleaned off more than this, cant it? It looks like there's plenty that is layered on top of the actual tooth that should be able to be removed, but I know it's not always as easy as that. And of course, not just if it CAN be removed, but removed safely? More to the point-safely by an amature?
