Hello TFF, I have been interested in micropalaeontology for a bit, especially after @Shamalama sent me some wonderful micro matrix samples along with slides for micropalaeontology. The tiny organisms like ostracods, conodonts, bryozoans and crinoids are so amazing and getting to see them under the microscope is very special. However, I have been limited in my ability to collect these fossils due to a lack of these slides, I got two from Dave which were beautiful and very helpful but similar ones online cost quite a bit, especially since most were from outside the US. For a while
Hello everyone, I have been interested in fossil fishes from the Ordovician- Devonian for quite a while now, and recently I have begun to venture into the field of micropalaeontology a bit more. This has led me to purchase matrix samples from the Harding sandstone and I am also interested in getting some Maple Mill stuff. The problem is I currently only have one more vacant slide to use for these fossils, it was sent to me by @Shamalama with some other microfossils but I don't know where I could get more. The slide has an aluminum case with a piece of thin foam board
I am in the process of creating a micropaleontology themed artwork., and even after having received a good amount of expert help, I feel overwhelmed by the subject and would like to get more opinions on my composition. The piece will consist of a series of disc-shaped layers, each of which will bear microfossils from a different geologic time period. These layers will be stacked like a roll of coins, so as to look like a drill core. The attached image shows a part of my research spreadsheet, including images and descriptions of each layer. If anyone here has any thoughts on the or
