Dinobot posted a topic in Fossil PreparationHi 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!
Hi everyone, I took a step b ack from the forum and fossil collecting in general due to health issues (which turned out ok for now) but I recently obtained this beautiful specimen the other day and although it has it's flaws, I love it. It is a partial molar which belonged to a wooly mammoth.
