How easy is it to damage a fossil? I've gathered some interesting possible partial fossils from a couple sites adjacent to a river, so of course there's mud to be removed. I was (I thought) using gentle methods that I don't think would cause damage, but perhaps they're incompletely fossilized (if fossils in the first place)? I rinsed in the adjacent river 1st, dried with microfiber cloths. Later, noticed some changes in appearance... Well, before cataloguing my sins, let's start off with what one should or should not do? Thanks
Hi, I found this petrified/fossilised tooth thing and have had it for about three years it has always kept me wondering so I've posted pictures of it in the hope that someone may be able to identify exactly what it could be off. Its dimensions are around 7cm (2.75') long, between 5-6cm (2.2') wide at the base and 2.5cm (1') thick at the base tapering to a blunt end. I will appreciate all helpful input Cheers, Dan.
