I just put together a rather shakey video of the C & D Canal in New Castle County, Delaware in preparation for a trip I'm leading this fall. I didn't find anything Earth-shattering that day, but it gives and idea of the locale and the finds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMfXz-_B5fA&t=93s
Hi all fossil enthusiasts, I'm very new to the fossil hunting scene-live in the UK and recently went on my first hunt at Charmouth beach on our south coast (Jurassic coast)...loved it so much I plan to go regularly. Having done 2 hunts, I'm wanting to make sure I do right by the fossils I find, and to present them in all their glory. Charmouth is overflowing with Belamnites and also I have found quite a few ammonites already (mostly looking barely recognisable preserved in iron pyrite). For the belamnites,they are already pretty good but wondering if there is anything I should spray or soak them in, now they're fully exposed to air and dry. For the pyratised ammonites, can anything be done to remove the pyrite that is not ammonite (or are they all one entity now?). I also have a piece that appears to b a slatey rock with ammonite imprints...bit worried it could break easily...any advice on how to treat it (see photo). I would also also like help identifying one (photo attached of round fossil on its own)...I thought when I first found it that it was an ammonite,but it doesn't have rings wrapping around it. Could it b something else (or just a central bit of an ammonite with the outer rings lost?). N.b. To date, I have soaked them all in tap water and used a toothbrush to clean mud off...hope that is ok?! If u made it reading this far,thanks so much for your time-any help would be greatly appreciated! K V
