Kurufossils posted a topic in Is It Real? How to Recognize Fossil FabricationsI will be receiving soon what looks to be a large youngshunensis trilobite, while I am aware of fakes from china I'm not sure if specimens of this trilobite like this just have real rough prep work done to them or if maybe there is some sort of carving involved. Any knowledgeable feedback to whether its a keeper or not will be greatly appreciated, always wanted to nab one of these.
A while ago I bought this Gerastos trilobite from Morocco. It has strange minerals in the matrix. It has pockets of a green mineral that sort of glimmers in the light. It also has lines of a white mineral, which fluoresce under black light. If anyone has any idea what these are I'd be interested to hear.
