I have to confess, I know virtually nothing about collecting fossils. I bought this little trilobite fossil for $14. It has some sort of glossy coating on it which I assume was done by another inexperienced collector in an attempt to preserve it. If I pour Acetone or paint thinner or something else on it and lightly brush it with a toothbrush to get rid of the coating, will that damage the original fossil material or the matrix? Thanks.
