Peter Stahlberg posted a topic in Is It Real? How to Recognize Fossil FabricationsHello! I'm new to fossil collecting (as well as this forum) and have bought my first fossil today. Being completely inexperienced, I thought I'd try asking folks on this forum whether the fossil I bout is authentic. I am somewhat skeptical of this crinoid fossil's authenticity given how well the crinoids themselves seem to be preserved in the substrate. They almost look like they're made out of potting clay and are very crisp. Could anyone with experience give their input? This fossil was a significant investment so I'd like to at least know I got what I paid for! Thanks in advance.
