  1. Hi! I'm very new to fossil finding and lucked across some fossil-filled rocks in central Kentucky a few weeks ago. I found these rocks in the median of I-75 in Kentucky, just before exit 87 (south of Richmond KY), where they had eroded off a sheer rock face that had been blasted out decades ago to make way for the expressway. I'm not sure what kind of rock the shells are encased in, and the only tools i have at my disposal are not particularly well suited for the job (a generic 5/8" masonry chisel, a nail hammer, and a dremel with various carbide cutting bits). I'm working on getting some tools eventually, but for now that's what I'm working with. Any tips or suggestions about how to get these shells out of this stone with what I currently have? Is it just going to be impossible without better tools, and if so, which tools would you recommend for this job? I'm attaching a picture of the rock and shells in question, with letters A, B, and C above the shells i've noticed encased in here. I'm thinking A and B may have some promise, and maybe C too? I have no idea what I'm doing here so I'm open for any insights or suggestions
  2. Hi everyone, I am new to fossil hunting and recently took a trip to my local spot at Aust cliff in Bristol. I found some small chunks of bone bed about the size of a golf ball along the foreshore which I can see have small bits of bone including teeth. Does anyone have a good technique to extracting these without damaging the interesting bits. Cheers
  3. Removing putty-like adhesives

    I am wanting to remove this shark tooth for photography purposes, but it is attached to the display case via some putty-like adhesive. I haven't tried poking at it in fear of damaging the tooth (which is quite brittle), but it does appear to be somewhat hardened, although I may be wrong. Does anyone know how to best remove putties using household materials with minimal damage to the fossil? Any help is appreciated.
  4. small shells

    I have some small rock samples similar to this. What is the best way to extract some of the shells? Is vinegar safe ? I believe the matrix is coquina.
  5. Help please. Complete beginner, first time hunting for fossils in Yorkshire, England (kettleness) I have no tools, just my hands and eyes at the minute Ive found a few ammonites which I would like to free. Thus far Ive watched youtube videos and googled only; they make it look so easy with just a hammer. My first attempt I broke the end off my ammonite and now afraid to try again. Please advise for tools and extraction methods? Also, how do I care for them once they are freed? many thanks!
  6. ID? Of sink stone

    Found Brewster Co. far west Texas. Lots of fossils in the area. I think this may be a shell? Want to make a sink out of it if I can figure out how. Need some good advice and knowledge. What is it? Top view first. 16" diameter. second bottom view. then the edge. 6" in total height of dome as bottom is flat.
  7. Fossil Extraction?

    I have this item which looks to me like a shell. It has the shape but it appears to be incased in rock. Is there any way for me to "uncover" the shell if there is one at all? How would I go about trying to discover if there is something hidden within? The pics don't show the form as much as in person but hopefully you guys see what I see!
  8. I have read many of Dr. Schweitzer's papers and am wondering what the safest methods to extract soft tissue from dinosaur bones are. I cannot find any information on this topic so I figured I would start here. By soft tissue I mean apparent original biological molecules such as collagen, red blood cells, etc.. Thanks for any help on this topic!
