Here's a nice, large brachiopod I found at Paulding, OH, yesterday. The Silica Shale is rich in organics and lends itself well to dissolution with KOH, a strong base. Here is the "before" pic after cleaning the fossil with a brass brush. The remaining matrix is rock, not "dirt" and would take quite a bit of time to remove with a pin vice and air abrasion.
