  1. Hi! I'm looking for advice. I found this fossil yesterday and like so many others I find it's on an unstable piece and has a major crack through it. I'd hate to coat it with anything as I prefer to keep things natural. Yet I'm also worried that it might just fall apart on its own or from handling. What's my best course of action? Any advice/help is appreciated.
  2. This 2" claw arrived in the mail broken, unfortunately. The seller has offered to either refund me in full or give me a discount if I decide to repair it myself. In this case, what's my best option here? Regarding repair, is there a certain type of paleobond that would work best? I'm worried about the interior because it's basically that Moroccan sandy stuff and it's very unstable. I do currently have PB750 on hand.
  3. The image I attached is a Drotops armatus specimen I just acquired. I recently started collecting trilobites again and eventually would like to get into prepping. The Drotops has all of its spines on that side of it's shell broken off into the still negative of the matrix. Fragments of the body of the shell and part of the head. What would be the best way to repair it to prepare for prep. I don't plan on working on this for a while, until I get more practice in.
  4. Hi i just came aross this claw from kem kem basin . seller claimed to be no repair/restoration Look pretty nice to me . what do you think ? any repair or restoration ? any red frag ? thank in advance ! Gun

    Latham Shale Slab Repair

    Found on my last trip to the Marble Mountains Latham Shale. I found this when just a little bit was sticking out of the hillside surface. Took me most of a day to extract. As you can see, it didn't as they say "come quietly" I used a couple little tubes of super glue to hold it together as much as possible before extracting it but it still came out in more then a few pieces I spent about a week getting it back together as much as possible (I mean really, who doesn't have some bolts and screws left over when putting their car back together ) I have a lot more advanced prep to loo
  6. Hi, I received this massive Spinosaurus tooth from USA. (I live in Thailand) As I can see from my eyes, I'm not sure which part was repaired (or faked). Seller told it only has been repaired near the crown. Any thought? Thanks a millions!!!
  7. I was curious if this tooth has been repaired or anything weird. Seems like it might have been broken and glued back together. I'm a bit curious about the shiney look and dark speckles on it. Does it seem like they put a coating on it and the speckles are matrix or miscellaneous 'dirt'? For the price I am offered it at I know it's not going to be perfect. Just wanted to see if anyone saw any red flags or weirdness.

    Specimen Repair?

    I was wondering if someone could advise me on whether or not I should repair this piece of Chiapas amber I recently acquired (it's a clean break with only a few small slivers missing; the specimen is exceptionally clear, and has no internal fractures); it was damaged during shipping, and I've been debating whether or not to repair it. What effect might a repair have on it's value, and would it be more acceptable to keep it as two separate pieces? I know the repair of fossil specimens is a generally acceptable practice, but I'm uncertain if this applies to amber (I'm guessing not, a
  9. I have a few pleistocene bones and large shell fragments that are fractured, and I'm unclear on the best way to repair them. I've read many topics on the forum about the importance of consolidation and materials to use, and I have materials on order, so I should be able to get started soon. But I'm a little unclear on the process if the bone is in two or three pieces. If you have a completely broken bone, should you consolidate the broken pieces separately first (i.e. in an acetone/butvar mix), then glue them back together with something like CA glue? Or would the cons
  10. Hi All! I am new to fossil collecting and I recently bought a Carcharodontosaurus tooth from an online fossil store. I just want to double check with more experienced people to see if the tooth looks real and is as described by the seller. The description said it is from the Kem Kem deposits of Morocco, and has no repair or restoration. The tooth is one and 1/16 inches long. Thank you for your help!
  11. While out on a hunt in the Marias River Shale (Cretaceous) near Fort Benton, MT, I found what I believe to be either a holoscaphites or clioscaphites, based on the research I have done. The rocks in the exposure are quite segmented and eroded and don't take much force to break apart; a few small taps from my hammer made the rock, and the fossil inside, essentially fall apart into several pieces. My question is not one of ID, but rather of how to best prepare this fossil. From looking around this forum, it seems that many people use super glue for repairs that aren't very large. Wou

    Fossil hunting

    Hello, Just wondering, when you visit a large Fossil or Mineral expo / fair, do you guys bring your UV light to check if the fossils are real ? If you spot something suspicious on for example a tooth of claw, what will it look like? Im buying my UV light for future purchases. Looking forward to hear what you all take along when you're on the hunt for new fossils. Another question, can you spot a Fossil in matrix with the UV light? Best regards, Egon
  13. Greetings All! I have an old (ca. 1960s) S.S. White Model F (that's right, Model "F") that has stopped working. I've taken it apart and tested what I could, but I'm pretty sure it's an electrical issue, and I don't have much experience in circuit testing. Does anybody on the Forum know someone who repairs such ancient technology? Preferably in the Midwest (I live in Michigan) to avoid shipping charges (it is both big and heavy). Thank you much for any referrals that you can provide!
  14. Looking to purchase a new Megalodon tooth that is not from the United states. Came across this one. Is this worth it or should I skip it Edit 1: The big and actual only thing i am kind of skeptical about is the right part of the Bourlette. I've purchased and traded with this person for a longer time now and he is trustworthy
  15. I found this bag of shattered fossils in my father's fossil collection. Where might this type of fossil material come from? Is this shale? It's almost chalky and very fragile. It seems to be have shattered in shipping. Is any of it worth saving? And if so, what to do? Thanks in advance!
  16. I’m planning on trading for this tooth but before I do I wanted to make sure if there’s any restoration or repair on the tooth. The tooth is labeled as Zhuchengtyrannus cf. and is from the 75-71 million year old Djadochta Formation of Southern Mongolia. Though I think it’s safer to call it Tyrannosaurid indet. at the moment as the species or any Tyrannosaur species hasn’t been formally described from the formation.

    Big Ammonite Repair Adhesive

    Hello everyone! I managed to bring home this crazy guy, the problem is that it was so big it broke in pieces when extracting it. I've been using "Loctite Super Glue 3" (ethyl cyanoacrylate) for repairing my fossils until now and it worked pretty well. However, this one might be too heavy I'm afraid it wont be enough to keep the pieces together and it can be dangerous (since the whole fossil probably weights over 70 lbs). There are also some cracks I would like to fill, I heard a technique where you ground some matrix rock to dust and then use that powder to make a glue that has the e

    Rhino Repair

    I received this “little” project today. This restored wooly rhino skull was dropped while trying to be moved.
  19. This looks to have some small spots of fill, but do any of you see something more? Also hard to tell if the horn was put into the left eye socket to make it look like a fascinating death fossil versus really found like that. thanks
  20. Hello everyone This tooth is one is like to buy if it's no repair, but it's a strange one. It looks as if it's supposed to have repair because the contours are off. But the enamel is really pretty. What say people here? Repairs?
  21. Hello all, I'm thinking of buying this carcharodontosaurus tooth, it's 78 mm long, but it looks a little restored in my unprofessional eyes. What do people here think?

    Ungluing help

    Hey, I was wondering if there was something I could use to unglue a tooth I’ve got. It broke during shipping and I glued it, but there’s a piece that I have that doesn’t fit where it should go. I don’t want to use acetone cause I know that can be harmful to fossils sometimes, and paleo debonder didn’t work great previous times I’ve tried using it. TIA
  23. Hi im and amateur collector and I'm not sure if the was the right section to post this under. I purchased this tusk a couple years ago. The seller said he's had it since the 1970s. Because of the large crack from top to bottom and the inside is quite powdery. Is there and thing I can do to preserve it? Its about 6.5 feet along the curve and 120lb so I get worried when I move it. Also I see that great patina on some tusks is that something that is added 5o make it shine or does it comes out of the ground like that? Any help would be appreciated!
  24. Edit: Wrong use of photos. Will update shortly! Hello! I've been eyeing this tooth for some time now - but before buying I could need a bit of help! The price is very reasonable for a tooth at 11,3 cm and overall the condition is good - which makes me a bit suspicious The market for fossils in the country I live in is very niche, which might explain the price, but I would like to hear the opinion from folks that have more knowledge than I do. Cheers! Anne

    Restoration

    I don't know if I am the only one that i hate restoration on the fossils. I love natural and original specimens. I prefer a tooth 80-90% complete from a tooth with restoration. Also, i prefer a B grade tooth with no repair, from a A grade repaired tooth. You?
