I've been making a series of fossil-formation "lockets". Little trinkets that look like a rock, and which open up to show fossils from the rock formation depicted. This Ediacaran Biota locket is my most complex, and most carefully researched piece to-date. Right now I am considering what to do next... When I do an internet search for "famous fossil formations", the first result is for "Hell Creek". It's kind of tough to fit dinosaurs into these little lockets, but I am thinking I could get the K-Pg boundary plated (probably in Gold, since Iridium doesn't look all that different than pewter). I'd love to hear comments, and suggestions on other formations that would be good to do (I already have Burgess Shale and Solnhofen Limestone).
These are a few of the pdf files (and a few Microsoft Word documents) that I've accumulated in my web browsing. MOST of these are hyperlinked to their source. If you want one that is not hyperlinked or if the link isn't working, e-mail me at email@example.com and I'll be happy to send it to you. Please note that this list will be updated continuously as I find more available resources. All of these files are freely available on the Internet so there should be no copyright issues.
