  1. It has been a while since we went to my favorite hunting spot near Chimay in Belgium, so I was realy eager to go back when we got there we had a little surprise, the whole back of the quarry was transformed in a motor cicle trail, apparantly this sunday there wil be a race and a lot of the bikers were prospecting the trail on foot in preparation of the race. luckily this didnt hinder us on our search, and this opend even opportunities since they dug through some of the stoone piles to make the trail thus revieling new material to go through, although we were careful not to dammage the trail. my first find was a strange large nodule covered in mud, at first vieuw it looked to be a big goniatite, and since it was found near the car I directly put it in the trunk without giving it further ispection. after looking on the sides of the new tracks we went to the big scree where we usually hunt, the heavy rains from the past few weeks cleared a lot out and we did find a few very well preserved goniatites. On the top of the scree pile Natalie found a huge specimen: a goniatite of around 40cm an not far from it I found a 2nd large one . we had a very sccesful field trip today with great wether conditions ( mabey a little to hot ) and excelent finds. my biggest surprise was when I drove home, I stopped at a self carwash to clean of the mud of the big specimens with a high pressure cleaner. The first mud coverd nodule that I put in the car wasn't a goniatite, but a nodule with 3 nautiloids on it, 2 incomplete, but a big one in the center. A vieuw on the race track: A toad hiding in the rubble. Natalie at the spot where she found the big goniatite: the huge specimen she found: and a 2nd one : A lot of life in the pools in the quarry: A realy nice Manticoceras sp waiting for me more shales and limestone to go through: A stop for water and snacks after the hunt, and of course a lot of local beers on sale "Chimay" beer: the large specimens after the high pressure cleaner: the surprise Nautiloids after the mud was removed: I still have alot of unpacking to do and prepp work in the next few days. I'll post updates in this post.
  2. Before going back on my field trip today I had a few projects to finish. so last week I tackeld a broken goniatite, the specimen was in 2 parts and and large gaps were between the 2 parts. first I prepped the 2 pieces appart and then glued them back together. Then I filled the gaps with crack filler that I mixed with a bit of black paint. after this dried, I cut of the exces with a sharp knife and smoothed the surface with a a dremel with soft steel whire brush. I then finished it by adding some paint on the restored parts.
  3. Devonian cephalopod collection

    I finaly got around putting all my best cephalopods specimens that I collected over the past 4 years in the frasnian of southern Belgium on there place in the cabinets. They all come from the same location. (except an orthocone and a receptaculites from the same age but from a different spot ) most of it has already been posted in individual posts, but this gives an overal vieuw of the part of the collection on display. Enjoy al the Manticoceras, Crickites, Tornoceras, Bactrites, Orthocones and more
  4. Big manticoceras prepp

    Yet again a Manticoceras prepp my last few preppjobs were very succesful, and inspired by what @Ludwigia did on a larger one that I sent him, I tried to prepp one of my larger Manticoceras specimens. I tried a few new tricks to prepp this one, although the living chamber got dammaged, I decided to remove even more of the living chamber to show more of the inner shell with suture lines. It turned out quite well: Manticoceras sp. diameter 16 cm Frasnian ( late devonian ) Chimay area ( Belgium ) as found: ( top left specimen ) removed from the large chunk of matix: ( and glued back together, not everything went acording to plan ) during prepp: the end result:

  6. lucky split during preppjob

    This week I've been prepping a few goniatites that I had lying around. This one didn't look very promising, but what a surprise I got when I tried to remove it from the matrix. a few hits with the chissle and it came out perfectly. I just had to remove the extremities and clean out the center with an airscribe. It turned out to be one of my best specimens Yet an other Manticoceras sp. for display

  9. Weathered crystallised goniatites

    I promised some regular posts from my collection in the weeks to come, so for this week I got two particular goniatites I like to share. Both specimens are weathered, but reveal some beautiful crystalisation of the chambers. Especialy the large one where they even form small calcite geodes. 1st specimen: Manticoceras sp. Frasnian Chimay area ( Belgium ) 2nd specimen: Sphaeromanticoceras sp. Frasnian Chimay area ( Belgium )
  10. Lucky split

    Most of the times when you find a promising specimen there is always that challenge of getting it unscathed out of the matrix. And often resulting in a lot of cursing and a damaged specimen. But sometimes, on very .. very … rare occasions you do get that lucky split. Found this Manticoceras ( goniatite ) last summer. One good hit with the chisel and pop. Only minimal prepwork left. This one is by far one of my best specimens and made it to my new avatar Manticoceras sp. Frasnian ( Devonian ) Chimay area ( Belgium ) https://photos.app.goo.gl/5rcHesN212VPDnzq2 Greetings, Manticocerasman
  11. Goniatite prepping

    Just wanted to share 2 of my last preparations that I’m particularly pleased with. Especially the Tornoceras sp. since I was missing a decent one for my collection. Manticoceras sp. Frasnian ( Devonian ) Chimay area ( Belgium) Tornoceras sp. Frasnian ( Devonian ) Chimay area ( Belgium )
