I recently acquired a small Araucaria cone and I am wondering what the general opinion on cutting/polishing fossil pine cones. Should it be cut to show off the internal structure or is it best to just leave it as a whole specimen? How do you feel about modifying fossils in general to enhance aesthetic, rather than scientific, value? I am interested to hear the Fossil Forum's opinions.
Hello Fossil Forum, I found a supposed Araucaria fossil leaf from the Russian Federation for a very low price on our favorite site, eBay. The dealer claims that the fossil is an unknown Araucaria species from the Upper Jurassic of Lena River Basin, Markha River, Siberia, Russia. Is this fossil legit and should I buy it?
